Troop Cookie Manager Manual


  • Girl Safety – Girl Safety always comes first. Be sure that your girl(s) are following the safety rules for selling Girl Scout cookies.
  • Cookie Planner – Help girls build the best cookie season ever with the new Built By Me cookie planner. Built by Me is a new online tool made especially for volunteers that helps create a customized plan for cookie season.
  • My Cookie Friend – Girls love to earn the plush mascot every year during the cookie program. These lovable mascots encourage and inspire girls to reach higher goals. The My Cookie Friend website is where cookie season animals come to life!
  • 5 Steps to Success – Help girls get ready by selecting learning activities that fit their experiences and interests.
  • Cookie House Party – What better way to celebrate the collaborative spirit of the Girl Scout Cookie Program® than to host a cookie-selling house party?!
  • Cookie RookiesTM and Cookie Captains – If girls are new to the Cookie Program, this fun, 10-minute video is just what they need to understand the basics. Cooke Captains are experienced teens who can be great mentors for first-time sellers.
  • Booth Sale Support – Customers love to buy cookies when they can eat them right away. That’s why cookie booths – set up in front of groceries, at sporting events, or in other high-traffic areas – are so successful. Girls will have lots of fun setting up their “store” and talking to customers.
  • Activities for girls – Little Brownie Bakers® has tons of ideas that teach girls everything they need to know about reaching their goals during cooking season, while having loads of fun!
  • Talking to families – Girls succeed when families are involved. When families understand the importance of the Girl Scout Cookie Program®, they give it their full support and help girls do everything it takes to be successful.
