5 steps to success
5 steps to Cookie Program success
You can help girls have a great Cookie Season by guiding them through these simple steps to success.
1. Set group goals
One of the most important lessons you can teach a girl is how to set a challenging goal and reach it. Just imagine how far she’ll go in life if she knows that, step by step, she can achieve her dreams. Encourage girls to set two kinds of group goals:
- What can we do with our cookie money to help others?
- What can we do with our cookie money for fun and learning?
2. Set personal goals
Girls want to know how they can make the group successful. How many packages must she sell? You can guide her toward figuring it out with a simple activity.
3. Hold a family meeting
If adults understand the importance of the Cookie Program, they give it their full support and help girls do everything it takes to be successful. Here are some ideas for talking to families.
4. Sell beyond family and friends
Girl Scout families and friends make great cookie customers! But if girls plan to reach an ambitious goal, they will need to expand their circle of customers. Here are some fun activities to help them get ready.
5. Track progress and celebrate success
Invite girls to create a goal poster or cut out and use the one in your DBJ or CSA Volunteer Guide. As sales add up, encourage girls to record them and track their success. When girls reach 100%, it’s time to celebrate!
