The 5 Skills – What Girls Learn!
When girls participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, the largest girl-led business in the world, they learn these essential 5 Skills:
Goal Setting – Girls set cookie sales goals and with their team, create a plan to reach them and develop cooperative and team-building skills along the way.
Decision Making – Girls develop a basic business plan for cookie sales and work as a team to decide when and where to sell cookies and what to do with the money they earn. While doing this they further their critical-thinking and problem-solving skills.
Money Management – Girls develop a budget, take cookie orders, handle customers’ money, and gain valuable, practical life skills.
People Skills – Girls learn how to talk to, listen to, and work with all kinds of people while selling cookies. These experiences help them develop healthy relationship and conflict-resolution skills they can use throughout their lives.
Business Ethics – Girls are honest and responsible during every step of cookie sales. Their business ethics here reinforce the positive values they are developing as a Girl Scout.
