The Girl Scout Cookie Program is an opportunity for girls to learn and practice valuable life skills such as responsibility, honesty, money and time management, goal setting and planning, teamwork and communication. Girls have fun while developing self-potential, relating to others and contributing to society. Click here to learn more about Girl Scout Cookies.
