Building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place

Getting Ready to Rally

By Lisa Kaminski; Manager, Community Development

Thanksgiving has now passed. The New Year is fast approaching. And, just a few short days after we ring in 2013 the Girl Scout Cookie Sale Program in NYPENN Pathways begins! Are you ready to rally? Is your service unit planning a cookie rally?

A cookie rally is a high energy celebration of the start of the cookie sale program. It helps girls build skills and, most of all, is fun!

Most cookie rallies are set up in a station format where girls move through the various stations learning different skills at each one. They are often comprised of the following components:

Goal Setting

Booth/Marketing

Product Knowledge

Technology

Selling Skills

Financial Literacy

Rewards

There are many activities that can be done at the different stations that will help teach girls skills such as goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. Adults in Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways can find cookie rally resources on the Little Brownie Baker website.
