Girl Scouts have people skills!

Girl Scouts have people skills!

Because your Girl Scout learns how to talk and listen to all kinds of people while selling cookies…

● She can ask a teacher for help or navigate the school cafeteria more easily.

● She can work well with others on school projects or as part of a sports team.

“Asking a stranger or even a neighbor to buy a box of cookies can be hard. I can’t be shy. I have to speak up and look them in the eye when I’m talking. And I have to be able to explain why I’m doing what I’m doing. Everyone likes cookies. But when I explain what the money we’re making is used for and what I’m learning from selling cookies, people feel even better about buying a box—or four. And I feel good, too.”
