Cookie Boss

Cookies Power Amazing Adventures for Girls

Sure, they’re awesomely delicious, but beyond the sweetness, Girl Scout Cookies are an opportunity for girls to do extraordinary things. 

When you make a Girl Scout Cookie purchase, you’re helping the next generation of girl entrepreneurs get an important taste of what it takes to be successful—teamwork, planning, and a positive outlook (for starters).

Proceeds from your purchase stay local and help power new experiences for her and every awesome G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader) who sells Girl Scout Cookies! Whether it’s a trip she’ll never forget, a service project that will change her community forever, or the opportunity to build a lifetime of memories at camp, Girl Scout Cookies help make it all 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 in the world. Being a Girl Scout Cookie professional gives you skills essential for success both now and later:

   Goal Setting
   Decision Making
   Money Management 
   People Skills
   Business Ethics 

Need some help getting started? Check out all the amazing resources that will make it easy to sell more boxes of cookies this year than you ever thought possible! 

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:

Online/Digitally

You’ll utilize just the Digital Order Card (DOC and not keep a physical inventory of cookies. The 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 cookie or money. 

Traditional

You’ll participate in the traditional ways of selling cookies: 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 are responsible for turning in all cash for the sale. 

Both Online and Traditional

You’ll use both the Digital Order Card and traditional ways of participating in the Cookie Program. You are responsible for submitting physical orders to the Cookie Boss Team Leader for pick up from one of our Cookie Cupboards and responsible for turning in the cash for the physical cookies you order.

*Continuing this year, there is also an option for “girl delivery” for local customers when participating in online preference. You can harness the power of the internet without responsibility of physically handling money!
