As the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world, the
Girl Scout Cookie Program and the Girl Scout Fall Take Action
Program are foundational experiences during which girls learn to think
like entrepreneurs and to develop vital business skills. Plus, Girl
Scout Product Program proceeds power fun and enriching experiences for
Girl Scout troops year-round!
Participation in the Girl Scout Product Programs provides
exceptional opportunities for girls to develop life skills, such as
leadership, teamwork and commitment, along with business skills in
marketing, project management and budgeting, and is the best way to
fund group activities. Our program materials offer fun and
age-appropriate activities for all girls to learn these life and
Did you know that the Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest
girl-led business in the country, with sales of more than $700 million
per year for girls and their communities nationwide? That’s right. The
Girl Scout Cookie Program is the leading entrepreneurial program for
girls. No university has produced as many female business owners as
the Girl Scout Cookie Program has. If you have a moment, watch the
latest Girl Scout video for an inspiring look into just how powerful
those treats—and the girls who sell them—can be.
Girl Scouts have been selling cookies to earn money as early as
1917, only five years after Juliette Gordon Low founded the Girl Scout
movement in the United States. Since then, it has become a part of
American culture as well as the premier financial literacy program for girls.
Product programs are appropriate for all girls K-12. The online Fall
Take Action Program, which includes nuts, candies and magazines, kicks
off the year in October with an animal conservation take action
project. The iconic Cookie Program takes place in late January through
mid- March. Information about both of our product programs can be
found under Cookies+ on
our GSNorCal website and from your local volunteer Service Unit
Product Manager during the appropriate season.
