It’s almost Girl Scout Cookie time! On Saturday, January 6, Girl Scouts of Connecticut will kick off the beginning of the 2018 cookie season by hosting two Cookie Rallies to help prepare girls to become the next century of female entrepreneurs! Current Girl Scouts are encouraged to attend and bring a non-Girl Scout friend to join in on the fun and learn about all the benefits of being a Girl Scout!
The Cookie Rallies will be held at Shelton Intermediate School in Shelton and at RHAM High School in Hebron. At the Cookie Rallies, girls will immerse themselves in activities to prepare them to be true cookie bosses this Girl Scout Cookie season. They will learn marketing tips, play games, and have access to a number of marketing tools to help them reach their cookie goals! There will also be tables with general Girl Scout information for non-Girl Scouts who wish to learn more about all of the incredible things that Girl Scouts has to offer!
For over 100 years, Girl Scouts has been the experts on girls. Girl Scouts is the best girl leadership experience in the world. Only Girl Scouts gives girls access to an inclusive, safe, girl-led, all-female environment where they can try new things, develop a range of skills, take on leadership roles, and feel comfortable failing, dusting themselves off, and trying again.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program, now over 100 years old, is the largest girl entrepreneurial program in the world. Every year, Girl Scouts set goals, make decisions on how to target their customers, develop business ethics, manage money, and learn people skills.
