National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend
  • Friday-Sunday, February 19-21, 2021

    Girl Scouts nationwide participate in the annual National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend event celebrating the impactful entrepreneurial program that has sparked the success of millions of women. The Girl Scout Cookie Program, the largest annual investment in girls in the U.S., powers amazing experiences for girls as they learn invaluable entrepreneurial skills and make the world a better place.

    At a time of year when many Girl Scouts across the U.S. are selling Girl Scout Cookies, National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend encourages consumers to support the female leaders and change-makers of today and tomorrow. While just 17 percent of startups are founded by women, the cookie program equips girls with the skills and attributes they need—such as persistence, confidence, and healthy risk-taking—to become business founders and leaders in the future. 

    Join us in celebrating an amazing weekend during an amazing time of year! Email shop@gsnypenn.org to order this year’s 2021 NGSCW patch!
