What can a cookie buy? The experience of a lifetime.
- Goal setting
- Decision making
- Money management
- People skills
- Business ethics
· Someone who can set goals and meet deadlines. Blowing a deadline can mean blowing a deal!
· Someone who works well with others. Who wants to deal with strife and complaining in the workplace?
· Someone who understands customers. It doesn’t matter whether the “customers” are hospital patients, TV viewers, or other companies—every business has to know its customers and what they want.
· Someone who can influence others. This doesn’t just mean selling a product. Employers want people who can sell ideas, pitch projects and convince other employees to help out.
· Someone who is honest, trustworthy and reliable. This kind of goes without saying—or it should!
- Recruit and train volunteer adults to work with girls.
- Provide financial assistance needed to make Girl Scouting available for all girls.
- Improve and maintain camp and other activity sites.
- Keep event/camp fees for all members to a minimum.
- Sponsor special events and projects.
- $1.01 goes directly to Little Brownie Bakers for the cookies themselves.
- $0.45 to $0.50 goes to troops directly, depending on the per girl average (Troops receive the $.05 increase when the troop girl average is 212 boxes or more).
- $0.04 goes to individual Service Units/Communities.
- $2.50 to $2.55 is Council revenue. Girls Scouts of Alaska uses these proceeds to pay for cookie incentives, day and resident camps, girl assistance, volunteer training and support.
This year, for the first time, Girl Scouts involved in ways other than troops can participate in the Girl Scouts of Alaska Cookie Program and earn program credits, in addition to camp or travel credits, individually. Contact our Product Sales Manager, Tricia Matyas, to find out how: firstname.lastname@example.org
Happy cookie time, Girl Scouts! Thank you for giving girls the experience of a lifetime through the Girl Scout Cookie Program.
