Why We Cookie
Girl Scouts become smart cookies when they participate in
the Cookie Program.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest girl-led business in the country! When girls participate, they not only learn new skills, but also help fellow Girl Scouts and their communities while having fun.
The Cookie Program helps girls develop essential skills that will benefit them throughout their personal and professional life:
- Goal Setting
- Decision Making
- Money Management
- People Skills
- Business Ethics
Girls learn these skills and build their confidence by participating.
The Cookie Program is an important source of revenue for girls,
their troops and the council.
All the proceeds from the Cookie Program stay in our local Girl Scout council to support Girl Scouting in Arizona.
The proceeds also:
- Support the Girl Scout Leadership Experience through programs, events and activities for girls.
- Provide training and support for volunteers.
- Maintain our camp facilities and help keep camp programs affordable for girls.
- Support our membership and provides grants to girls and troops.
Girls and their individual troops also earn proceeds for troop activities and community service projects.
