Girl Scouts of Suffolk County (GSSC) is excited to announce that the Girl Scout Cookie Program is running now through April 17, 2023. For more than 100 years, the Girl Scout Cookie Program has allowed girls to develop entrepreneurial and leadership skills. All proceeds from the Girl Scout Cookie Season support local Girl Scouts by expanding their opportunities for new experiences and activities.
“Every Girl Scout that participates in our Girl Scout Cookie Program develops invaluable entrepreneurial experience while increasing their confidence from an early age,” said Tammy Severino, Girl Scouts of Suffolk County President and CEO. “This program allows girls to learn professional and financial literacy skills while earning funds that will go directly to their troops and community to grant new opportunities.”
The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world and helps Girl Scouts reach goals that power endless opportunities and adventures. Within the program, girls can create a personalized page on the Digital Cookie platform—which allows girls to offer an online option to purchase cookies. Throughout the season, local troops and Girl Scouts will also be setting up in-person booth sales held across Suffolk County.
Booth Sales allow Girl Scouts to engage with their community while they gain early business experience and progress in leadership. Each booth is designed and created by the girls in the troop, using their creativity and artistic ability to construct their unique booth. Girls gain experience managing inventory, handling customer transactions, creating displays, and much more. Booth Sale season starts February 3rd. To find the nearest Booth Sale, visit the Girl Scout Cookie Finder to support your local troop.
