Cookie Program Success = Family Involvement
When families understand the importance of the Cookie Program, they give it their full support and help girls do everything it takes to be successful. As a volunteer, you play a key role in helping families understand the importance of the Cookie Program. Hosting a family cookie meeting is a fun and easy way to give girls the tremendous advantage of family support.
The family cookie meeting:
Encourage girls to plan the family meeting, play leading roles and make it fun for everyone with games and songs. Let girls take the stage and inspire their families with their exciting goals!
Girl Scouts learn five skills that are core to the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.
These skills are:
Goal Setting as she sets cookie sales goals and makes a plan to reach them
Decision-Making as she decides how her team will spend the cookie money
Money Management as she takes orders and handles customers’ money
People Skills as she learns to talk and listen to all kinds of people while selling cookies
Business Ethics as she is honest and responsible every step of the way
The Cookie Program supports all of the girls in the local council and makes it possible to provide girl programs,
low-cost council events, training, resources and support for adult programs.
