Yesterday, November 15th, we (Kaytlen, Aleah, Alexis and Kyla) spent our afternoon (1-4p) in training to be Cookie Captains. Kyla couldn’t be present with us so she did it from her home and facetimed us at the same time. Jayda was in New York on a family vacation.
This was the first time we ever did a Girl Scout webinar, following along with the Oahu training event. We were lucky to be included in this because we don’t have the many opportunities that Oahu troops have simply because we are on an outer island. Travel costs to attend such events throughout the year would be just too much for us.
What is a Cookie Captain? It’s a person who plays an important role in educating younger Girl Scouts about the Girl Scout Cookie Program.
What is the responsibilities of a Cookie Captain? 1 – Mentor a group of first-time cookie sellers. 2 – Help at cookie events. 3 – Join young Girl Scouts at booths. And 4 – Provide assistance to the Service Unit Cookie Manager.
We play a special part in the Girl Scout Cookie Program and hold a very special place in the hearts of girls. We are role models for leadership. By teaching other girls about the cookie program, we help them reach their dreams.
Thank You so much Girl Scouts of Hawaii for giving us this opportunity!
Now to plan out how we will complete 15 service hours as Cookie Captains. 2-1/2 hours have already been earned for Alexis, Aleah, Kaytlen and Kyla having done the training so that leaves 12.5 hours to go. I smell a Cookie Rally in the near future. Do you?
