5 steps to success

Follow the five steps to cookie success and have lots of fun along the way.

Help girls get ready by selecting learning activities that fit their experiences and interests.

1 Kick off the cookie season

Online videos are ready-to-go meetings

Cookies Live Videos are engaging, interactive shows that inspire girls to reach high goals. Girls learn selling tips and have loads of fun along the way.

Cookie RookieFirst time sellers love Cookie Rookie. Made especially for young girls, this show teaches cookie names, how to ask customers to buy and more essential skills.

Turn teens into Cookie Captains. Keep experienced teens interested in the cookie program and give them a chance to give back with the Cookie Captain program. Older girls love being mentors to Cookie Rookies.
