The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world. Much more than a fundraiser, it’s a unique, hands-on way for girls to develop five essential skills that are core to the Girl Scout Leadership Program: Goal-setting, Decision-making, Money management, People skills and Business ethics.
USA Girl Scouts Overseas operates a limited Cookie Program restricted to sales through booths on U.S. military installations in Asia and Europe. Foreign import and food package and labeling laws are a few of many reasons we are unable to sell cookies on the economy.
Girls living overseas who are not affiliated with U.S. military installations, have a wide variety of other program opportunities to learn about financial literacy, goal setting, and money management. Here are examples from councils and overseas committees on how to give girls a way to build those skills.
All proceeds from the cookie activity stay with USA Girl Scouts Overseas to serve thousands of girls and adult volunteers, helping us make Girl Scouts one of the most affordable yet personally enriching activities a girl can choose while living overseas.
