It’s true. The Girl Scout Cookie Program has gone digital! Yes, the Girl Scout Cookie Program you know and love is going beyond the booth and offering more ways to buy cookies and support girls’ learning than ever before. And the best part is that Digital Cookie helps take the five essential life skills girls learn through the traditional cookie program to a whole new level—introducing critical lessons about online marketing, application use, and ecommerce to more than one million excited Girl Scouts, in real-time.

So how does it work? In true Girl Scout style, the girls always initiate the cookie sale. So if you know a Girl Scout, tell her you’re interested in becoming a Digital Cookie customer and she will take it from there! Don’t know a #cookieboss?
