Girl Scouts nationwide will participate in National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend 2019 February 22–24, celebrating the impactful entrepreneurial program that has sparked the success of millions of women. The Girl Scout Cookie Program®, the largest annual investment in girls in the United States, powers amazing experiences for girls as they learn invaluable entrepreneurial skills and make the world a better place.
At a time of year when many girls across the United States are selling Girl Scout Cookies®, National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend, an annual event, encourages consumers to support the female leaders and change-makers of today and tomorrow.
While just 17 percent of startups are founded by women, the cookie program equips girls with the skills and attributes they need, such as persistence, confidence, and healthy risk-taking, to become business founders and leaders in the future.
All of the proceeds fund troop projects and experiences, as well as important programming at the local level, such as outdoor adventure and science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). And many Girl Scouts invest their earnings back into their communities, which means that consumers are not just purchasing delicious cookies—they are also supporting the betterment of their communities and a bright future for girls.
Throughout this year’s cookie weekend and for the duration of the 2019 Girl Scout Cookie season, eager customers will be able to get their hands on their favorite treats, including the Thin Mints® and Samoas® varieties. Girl Scouts also offer a gluten-free cookie, Toffee-tastic®, which is celebrating five years in the cookie lineup.
