What better way to kick off the new year than to dive right into Girl Scout Season. As of yesterday, January 7, boxes of delicious Girl Scout cookies are for sale! But this year, the Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) are releasing a brand new bright and bold lemon-flavored cookie. The new Lemon-Up cookies are crispy and baked with inspiring messages that represent the Girl Scout core mission. These cookies are available now in select areas!
The Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls important skills that contribute to entrepreneurship. From money management to public speaking, goal setting and decision making, these skills will set them up for a lifetime of success. In fact, 9 in 10 Girl Scouts say the program has helped them build entrepreneurship skills and even encouraged them to pursue entrepreneurship as a career path. Better yet the profits from the cookie sale stay local as the Girl Scouts use their earnings to help their community, from feeding the homeless to helping animal shelters, raising awareness about bullying and beyond.
“Everyone loves Girl Scout Cookies—but the program is about so much more than cookies,” said GSUSA CEO Sylvia Acevedo. “Girls learn about entrepreneurship as they run their own cookie businesses. The important business and financial literacy skills girls learn through the program are proven to build their leadership skills and position them for success in the future. When you purchase cookies you are helping girls power their Girl Scout experience and you’re supporting female entrepreneurs.”
Don’t forget, along with the new flavor you’ll still be able to find their lineup of classic flavors like Thin Mints, Toffee-tastic, and more! Be on the lookout for Girl Scouts in your area to support a great cause!
