Kathy Cloninger, CEO of Girl Scouts of the USA, discusses how "the cookie sale is the best financial literacy program for girls in the country in her book "Tough Cookies: Leadership Lessons from 100 Years of the Girl Scouts."

ABC Bakers is proud of our more than 75 years as an official baker of Girl Scout Cookies and work diligently to help our Girl Scout council partners make the Girl Scout Cookie Program a meaningful leadership experience for girls of all ages. This program is so much more than a sale, it's a way for girls to develop The 5 Skills they will use throughout their lives: goal setting, people skills, decision making, money management and business ethics. As the largest girl-led business in the world, the Girl Scout Cookie Program represents a financial literacy experience for girls that is second to none.
