For Cookie Volunteers

Girl Scout activities like the Girl Scout Cookie Program help power unique and amazing experiences for girls, while also exposing them to essential life skills, life-changing opportunities to practice leadership and supercharged confidence.

Through these activities, girls are also able to contribute to their council’s ability to provide girl-centric programming in the community and make a difference by carrying out amazing service projects that make the world a better place for them and for all of us.

Adults also play a key role as they coach and mentor girls by focusing on these three key learning approaches:

Girl-led: Girls play an active part in figuring out the what, where, when, how and why of their activities. They lead the planning and decision making as much as possible.

Learning by doing: Girls engage in continuous cycles of action and reflection that result in deeper understanding of concepts and mastery of practical skills.

Cooperative learning: Girls work together toward common goals in an atmosphere of respect and collaboration that encourages the sharing of skills, knowledge, and learning.
