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 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.

DATES & TIMES: December 18, 8:00-9:30pm or December 19, 10:00-11:30am

PLACE: GSNC Service Center

COST: $5.00 per workshop
