When girls participate in the cookie program they learn decision making skills!

“When I sell cookies with my Girl Scout sisters, I make my own decisions, like how many boxes I want to sell, how to explain to people the good that comes from buying a box of cookies, and how hard I’m working to make my goal. We all have to agree on what we’ll do with the money, which means talking it out and being okay with sometimes not getting my way. And I have to figure out how to solve problems, like what to do when one of the girls is sick and can’t help out. My decisions matter. I’m responsible. There’s no looking to mom or dad for help.”
