The Girls Scouts of Southeast Florida recently kicked off its annual cookie sale. The Girl Scouts Cookie Program not only teaches girls essential entrepreneurial skills but also powers amazing experiences that allow them to learn and lead, now and into the future.
After last year’s record-setting Girl Scout Cookie Sale, troops in South Florida are kicking off this season with the return of Girl Scout S’mores, the most popular flavor to launch in the 101 years of Girl Scouts selling cookies. Consumers can now help fuel transformative leadership experiences by purchasing the Girl Scout S’mores, as well as Thin Mints, Samoas and more between now and Feb. 11.
Girls will learn five key skills — goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics — that will enable them to be leaders in business and sales, manage their personal and family finances, and gain self-sufficiency and confidence handling money.
More than 7,100 local Girl Scouts participate in the cookie program each year, generating more than $6 million in sales during the average season. All of the net revenue raised stays in the area.
From donating items to local animal shelters to participating in STEM activities, Girl Scouts are doing amazing things made possible by each and every box of cookies they sell.
