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.
Beginning December 3, the members of your Girl Scout Troop will begin to receive an email from Girl Scouts of the USA inviting Girl Scouts (or the parents of Girl Scouts) to register for the Digital Order Card. Girls can set up their web page, customize it and begin to schedule emails to go out to potential customers.
Remember, order taking, both in-person and digital begins on December 13.
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.
