SAFFORD — On Saturday, Dec. 14, Girl Scout members from across Graham and Greenlee counties will rally together to celebrate the upcoming cookie season. Girl Scout entrepreneurs will practice the five skills they learn from participating in the largest financial literacy program for girls in the world: goal-setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics.
When you buy a yummy box of famous Girl Scout Cookies, you’re powering amazing, year-round experiences for every Girl Scout in your community who sells them — that’s right, proceeds stay local and are reinvested in girls. Whether it’s the trip of a lifetime, a service project that changes her mindset or the opportunity to attend Girl Scout camp, the Cookie Program provides girls across Southern Arizona the skills to do amazing things for herself and her community.
