Powered by the Girl Scout Cookie Program
During this 100th year of Girl Scouts selling cookies, our young entrepreneurs are out in full force, working toward achieving their goals for the 2017 Girl Scout Cookie Program. All proceeds stay here to fund local programs and activities for girls, community service projects that improve neighborhoods, and training for our dedicated volunteers.
As girls go door-to-door, hold booth sales at stores and create personalized websites via the secure Digital Cookie platform, they are learning people skills, business ethics and how to manage money, set goals and make decisions. Participating in the Girl Scout Cookie Program provides unique experiences and opportunities for girls to develop life and leadership skills. Their confidence soars, and the leader in them emerges in powerful, everyday ways: raising their hands to speak up, facing and overcoming challenges and finding the silver lining in a bad day. Your Girl Scout Cookie purchases make all of that possible.
Thank you for supporting the cookie program. When you help your Girl Scout practice her sales pitch, host a "cookie cupboard" in your home, or say, "Yes!" when a girl invites you to purchase cookies, you are making a long-lasting difference in a girl's life!

Girl Scouts receive #withMalala scholarships
The scholarship competition was open to members in grades 11-12. To participate, Taylor and Amira earned Global Action Awards by hosting screenings of the movie He Named Me Malala and leading community projects to create positive change in their communities. Taylor (video) is helping former foster care youth adjust to college life. To ease holiday season food insecurity challenges faced by students who don't have families, she solicited restaurant gift cards and is spearheading a food drive. Amira is addressing adversities faced by women pursuing STEM fields and other disciplines. Through her monthly Career Corner Clubs (video), high school students meet with female professionals to strategize about gender gaps in salaries and other obstacles. Applause to Taylor and Amira for standing #withMalala!
