Talking to families

Girls succeed when their families support their participation in the Girl Scout Cookie Program®. As a volunteer, you’re vital to helping families see how the program is important for girls’ development. These tips will get you started.

Family at Home

Hold a family meeting
Girls can plan a family meeting to introduce their parents or guardians to the program and become the stars of their own show with games, songs and other activities! As the adult volunteer, you can explain the leadership skills girls will master and how the program helps them thrive.

You can also download a Cookie Family Connection Guide, 5 Skills for Girls Toolkit and other resources.

Little Brownie Bakers® also has resources to help. Find a sample agenda here.

Showcase family pins
Encourage families to support girls as they learn to think like entrepreneurs and run their own cookie businesses. Girls can earn all 13 pins in the collection—one unique pin for every year they participate in the cookie program.

See how to earn pins on girlscouts.org 

Take care of paperwork
Be sure parents know that all girls must have signed parent permission slips (download in English or Spanish) and must be registered Girl Scouts to participate. Remind them to return the permission slips promptly.
