Five Skills for Girls--what girls learn, why it matters, and how you can help!

Goal Setting: Girls set cookie sales goals and, with their team, create a plan to reach them. This matters because girls need to know how to set and reach goals to suceed in school, on the job, and in life.

Decision Making: Girls decide where and when to sell cookies, how to market their sale, and what to do with their earnings. This matters because girls must make many decisions, big and small, in their lives. Learning this skill helps them make good ones.

Money Management: Girls develop a budget, take cookie orders, and handle customers' money. This matters because girls need to know how to handle money-from their lunch money to their allowance to (someday) their paycheck.

People Skills: Girls learn how to talk (and listen!) to their customers, as well as learning how to work as a team with other girls. This matters because it helps them do better in school (on group projects, on sports teams, and on the playground) and, later, at work.

Business Ethics: Girls act honestly and responsibly during every step of the cookie sale. This matters because employers want to hire ethical employees-and the world needs ethical leaders in every field.
