If you always await the annual Girl Scout Cookie season, the wait will come to an end at the end of the week.

The Girls Scouts of Northern Indiana-Michiana announced Tuesday that cookie season begins this Friday. According to a press release, the Girl Scouts are announcing a sweet new way to celebrate young female leaders: refreshed packaging that reflects the amazing experiences that cookie earnings make possible for girls.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls about entrepreneurship as they have fun learning essential skills like money management, public speaking and decision making, which set them up for a lifetime of success. Nine in ten Girl Scouts say the cookie program has built their entrepreneurship skills and their interest in pursuing entrepreneurship as a career path—so every cookie purchase is an investment in the world-changing business leaders of tomorrow. What’s more, each purchase stays local to fund empowering experiences and leadership opportunities for girls in communities across the United States.

GSUSA’s refreshed cookie packaging continues to emphasize what the cookie program is all about, and the updated images feature current Girl Scouts taking part in a diverse range of experiences available to members—from camping and canoeing, to exploring space science and designing robots, to taking action to improve their communities.

The important business and financial literacy skills that girls learn through the program are proved to build their leadership skills and position them for success in the future. When you purchase cookies, you are helping girls power their Girl Scout experience and you’re supporting female entrepreneurs.
