GSNC Girl Scout Cookies


Girl Scout Cookies for Girl Scout Volunteers


The Girl Scout Cookie® Program is a key part to the Girl Scouting experience.  Much more than a way to raise money, the Girl Scout Cookie® Program is a hands-on, leadership and entrepreneurial opportunity which teaches girls five skills needed in both life and business-- goal setting, decision making, money management, business ethics, and peoples skills.  These are skills that last far beyond the Cookie Season

Cookies 101 for Troop Cookie Managers and/or Troop Leaders

This workshop is for new or relatively new Leaders and Troop Cookie Managers to learn the ins and outs of the Cookie Program. From a brief history to the latest technological resources, you’ll learn what you need to know to make the Cookie Program fun and rewarding for all members of the Troop. 


Note: This workshop should be taken in addition to your Association Troop Manager training.
There is a $5.00 fee for this workshop.  There are two morning and two evening sessions that will take place at the Council Service Center in Garden City.


Choose one to register for:
11/12, 10:00-11:30am, 11/13 7:00-8:30pm, 12/4 11:00am-12:30pm or 12/4 7:00-8:30pm.


Cookies 102:  eBudde® is your friend!
So…you’re no longer a Cookie Rookie…and you’ve got a year or two of being a Troop Cookie Manager “under your belt”…but, eBudde® is not yet your buddy!  On top of it all, this year you’ll need to share information with your Troop about the exciting new Digital Cookie Program.  Never fear, you are on your way to adding “Experienced Sales and Supply Chain Manager” to your resume!  At this session, veteran Troop Cookie managers and staff will share their tips for success. 

NOTE:  this program is for Troop Volunteers who have been involved with the Cookie Program for at least 1 year. This program does NOT take the place of your Association Cookie Manager training.

There is a $5.00 fee for this workshop.  You can choose from one morning or one evening session that will take place at the Council Service Center in Garden City.

Select one:
Thursday, 12/18, 8:00pm-9:30pm     or     Friday, 12/19, 10:00am-11:30am
