It’s Cookie Time!
When a Girl Scout sells you cookies, she’s building a lifetime of skills and confidence. She learns goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics—aspects essential to leadership, success, and life. These days, Girl Scouts are also learning 21st Century skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics! This year you can purchase Girl Scout Cookies from your local Girl Scout ONLINE!
By putting her mind and energies to a task, a Girl Scout can overcome any challenge.
There are no limits.
She can be anything. She can do anything.

4. People Skills
Girls learn how to talk to, listen to, and work with all kinds of people while selling their product.
