Los Angeles Welcomes Girl Scout Cookie Season With New Treat!

Cookie lovers throughout Greater Los Angeles can now support local Girl Scout entrepreneurs by ordering from the iconic lineup

Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles 2023 Girl Scout Cookie season is here! 3.4 million cookie packages were distributed to thousands of Girl Scouts over the weekend. By supporting the world’s largest entrepreneurial program for girls, cookie lovers throughout Greater Los Angeles can provide invaluable opportunities for Girl Scouts such as service projects, travel and summer camp with every package of cookies purchased.

Girls learn five key skills–goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics–through the Girl Scout Cookie Program.

“Participating in the Girl Scout Cookie Program has long-lasting benefits,” underscores Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles Chief Executive Officer Theresa Edy Kiene. “This year especially, I know our cookiepreneurs are excited to be practicing their skills and thrilled to be back to more in-person connections with their customers.”

The Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls financial literacy and decision-making skills, from the Daisy Cookie Goal Setter badge to the high school Entrepreneur Accelerator. Additionally, they learn planning, budgeting, teamwork, and innovative thinking. Through Girl Scouts, girls become leaders and prepare for their futures.

Starting on February 10, you can use the Cookie Finder to buy cookies from Girl Scouts near you, including the new Raspberry Rally™ cookie.
