The Girl Scout Cookie Program and the Girl Scout Chocolates & Magazines Program enable troops and girls to generate their own money for activities, camping adventures, international trips and community service projects. The programs also generate funds for all Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta initiatives.
When girls participate in these two product sales programs they gain confidence and develop people skills with every customer interaction.
