More than Cookie Sales

Young Entrepreneurs and Brand Ambassadors

Did you know March 12th is National Girl Scout Day? Girl Scouting in the US was started by Juliette Gordon Low on this day in 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, with 18 young girls in her troop. For these girls, Juliette Gordon Low organized enrichment programs, service projects, and outdoor activities and adventures. Since the time of the first meeting, Girl Scouts has grown to over 3.7 million members and they have done more than sell cookies. With countless brand collaborations, the Girl Scouts have advocated for women, minorities, and make a priority of giving back to their communities. Let’s take a peek at what the Girl Scouts have been up to lately.


Girl Scouts smell even sweeter! To celebrate this seminal institution that is the Girl Scouts, personal care brand Native has launched a limited-edition collection of personal care products inspired by everyone's favorite Girl Scout Cookies. Think Caramel Coconut, Trefoils®, Peanut Butter, Lemon and Thin Mints® scents in deodorants, body washes, and more! So you can not only support the Girl Scouts by buying their cookies, but you can also sport their delicious scents.


In February, Girl Scouts of the USA unveiled a new resource developed in partnership with General Motors to empower the next generation of female leaders in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. Their new STEM Playbook is chock full of resources and activities created to help adults engage girls in exploring the fascinating world of STEM. This initiative is a critical step forward in addressing the gender gap in STEM fields. Resources in the playbook include: age appropriate activities, hands-on experiments, and career exploration tools.
