The Cookie Sale is one of Girl Scouting’s most successful leadership development tools. It helps girls develop skills, self confidence and values. It allows them to learn and practice financial literacy skills, an area in which research shows girls fall behind boys. Since the vast majority of girls will at some point be responsible for managing their own finances, understanding money is a critical skill that all girls need.
When a girl sells cookies, she is essentially managing her own small business – setting goals and translating them into a business plan, handling product, interacting with customers and communicating the investment payoff, which is not just cookies that taste great but girls that are learning to be “Smart Cookies”!
