Girl Scouts Kicks Off Cookie Season With Goals To Empower Girls To Embrace Entrepreneurship

by Pleasant View

Thousands of girls in 90-plus communities across central and northern Arizona are preparing to show off their entrepreneurial skills with the launch of the Girl Scouts–Arizona Cactus-Pine Council (GSACPC) 2024 Girl Scout Cookie Season, taking place from Jan. 15 to Feb. 25, 2024.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program, renowned as the world’s largest entrepreneurial program in the world for girls, returns to foster the development of goal setting, money management, people skills, communication skills and decision-making skills in K-12 girls as they participate in the program.

“The kickoff of the 2024 Girl Scout Cookie Season marks a significant milestone for thousands of girls as they begin or continue on their entrepreneurial journeys, learning the vital skills that will stay with them for the rest of their lives,” said GSACPC co-CEO Mary Mitchell. “And great news! All nine classic Girl Scout Cookie favors are back so everyone can enjoy their favorites.”

GSACPC’s full assortment of iconic cookies will include fan favorites such as Thin Mints®, Samoas®, Girl Scout S’mores ® and more. And once again, funds raised during Girl Scout Cookie Season will stay 100 percent local.

“In addition to practicing positive self-growth and spreading joy through delicious treats, every package of cookies sold contributes to girl-led community projects, educational troop excursions, maintaining and improving our four Girl Scout camp properties across Arizona, and cultivating even more moments of sisterhood for Girl Scouts,” says fellow GSACPC co-CEO, Christina Spicer.

Booth locations include Fry’s Food and Drug Stores, Bashas’, Food City, Walmart, Sonic and many other retailers and small business that have served as longtime supporters of Girl Scouting. Visit www.girlscoutsaz.org/cookiefinder and enter your zip code to find a booth.

Customers can also utilize the Digital Cookie platform, which enables Girl Scouts to manage their sales through a personalized website and provides customers with the opportunity to conveniently purchase their favorite cookies online or have them delivered directly to their doorstep with the help of a Girl Scout. According to GSACPC, Girl Scouts who integrated the Digital Cookie platform into their strategy in addition to traditional sales, sold more cookies and achieved their cookie season goals faster.
