Whether that goal is a pizza party, a community service project, or your first overnight camping trip with your troop, you know how many boxes you need to sell to make it happen. 

But did you know that you're also part of a huge business, one that's run by girls just like you all over the country? In fact, you’re part of the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program for girls In the world. Being a Girl Scout Cookie professional gives you skills essential for success both now and later:

GSCWM Cookie Boss Program

What is the GSCWM Cookie Boss Program?

IT’S A GIRL LED PROGRAM RUN BY YOU!  The Cookie Boss Program is a way for girls not affiliated with troops to participate in the Cookie Program and earn funds to use in their Girl Scout pathway choice.

How can you participate in GSCWM’s Cookie Program?

Join the Cookie Boss Program TODAY, and you can participate in one of THREE different ways based on your individual circumstances:

  1. Online/Digitally- means you utilize just the Digital Order Card (DOC), you do not keep a physical inventory of cookies and orders are placed online by your customers and delivered directly to the customer.  You are not responsible for handling any of the payment transactions for the sale.  Harness the power of the internet without the responsibility of physically handling cookies or money. New this year, there is also an option for “girl delivery” for local customers!
  2. Traditional- means you utilize the following resource for selling cookies: either door to door sales, cookie booths, taking orders from the order card, and from friends and family. You will then put in an order in for one of our Cookie Cupboards to pick up cookies with your Cookie Boss Team Leader. You will be responsible for turning in all the cash transactions for the sale. In this case you are physically handling both cookies and money.
  3. Both-means you utilize both the Digital Order Card and traditional ways of participating in the Cookie Program such as cookie booths, door to door sales and order cards. You will be responsible for submitting physical orders to the Cookie Boss Team Leader for pick up from one of our Cookie Cupboards and be responsible for turning in the cash transactions for the physical cookies you order.

Want more information, reach out to your Cookie Boss Team Leader, who will be working with you throughout the program to fill orders, answer questions and help out with your Cookie Program Experience. We also have a Cookie Boss Manual as a quick reference!

Financial Literacy Program
Girls need and want financial literacy skills to help them achieve their dreams, with 90% of girls saying it is important for them to learn how to manage money. However, just 12% of girls surveyed feel "very confident" in making financial decisions. Thanks to the TD Bank Charitable Foundation, girls who participate in our K-12 Financial Literacy FREE Badge Program and the largest girl-led business (otherwise known as the Cookie Program) will learn financial empowerment and develop important skills. Click here for more information on the badge program.
