5 Skills Girls Learn from the Cookie Program

The 5 Skills that girls learn through participating in the Girl Scout Fall Product Program are valuable life skills that she can apply to her everyday life. [Five Skills for Girls Overview]

goal

Goal Setting

A goal can include the number of boxes she wants to sell, a trip or project she hopes to fund, or a cool reward or experience (Club 500!) she hopes to earn. When your girls sets a goal, it teaches her to plan ahead and set high standards for herself. This ambition can teach her to aim high in school, her career, and in life!

decision

Decision Making

Running a business is all about working with a group to make smart decisions. Decisions might include how the troop will use its money, how you will decorate your table, or what role each girl will take at a booth. This practice of problem solving teaches girls to think on their feet, a key skill of a good leader.

money

Money Management

Taking orders, handling customers’ money, and tracking on sales goals, are all hands-on lessons in financial literacy. Learning to budget and understanding the value of a dollar will help her make smart financial decisions in the future, like saving for something big she really wants versus spending her money often on little things.

people

People Skills

Learning how to talk to, listen to, and work with all kinds of people while selling cookies is important. These experiences allow her to develop healthy relationship and conflict resolution skills she can use throughout her life. She can learn to ask a teacher for help, work with others on school projects, or become part of a sports team.

business

Business Ethics

Your Girl Scout is honest and responsible at every step of the cookie sale. Her business ethics reinforce the positive values she is developing as a Girl Scout. Because she is honest, her friends, classmates, and teachers count on her and think of her as trustworthy. Everyone likes knowing and working with someone that is honest and responsible.
