GSNC Girl Scout CookiesGirl Scout Cookies for Girl Scout Volunteers

The Girl Scout Cookie® Program is a key part to the Girl Scouting experience.  Much more than a way to raise money, the Girl Scout Cookie® Program is a hands-on, leadership and entrepreneurial opportunity which teaches girls five skills needed in both life and business-- goal setting, decision making, money management, business ethics, and peoples skills.  These are skills that last far beyond the Cookie Season


Digital Cookie for Volunteers

Girl Scouts of Nassau County - Digital Cookie ProgramBeginning December 3, the members of your Girl Scout Troop will begin to receive an email from Girl Scouts of the USA inviting Girl Scouts (or the parents of Girl Scouts) to register for the Digital Order Card. Girls can set up their web page, customize it and begin to schedule emails to go out to potential customers.  

Remember, order taking, both in-person and digital begins on December 13.

To prepare your Girl Scouts for Digital Cookie, take a few moments to go through some Digital Cookie and Internet Safety tips with this Digital Cookie Safety First Video>>
