Girl Scout cookie season kicks off Jan. 21

Girl Scout cookies

For six weeks each year, Girl Scouts in Arizona participate in the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world: the Girl Scout Cookie Program. From Jan. 21-March 3, more than 11,000 girls in central and northern Arizona will take part with the goal of selling 3 million packages.

The cookie program is one of the most effective financial literacy programs in the world, developing girls’ skills in five areas: goal setting; decision making; money management; people skills; and business ethics.

Sales also have the potential to impact the community as troops reinvest their proceeds with service projects.
