2021 Girl Scout Cookie Program Resources

We’ve got this! We are Girl Scouts. When presented with a challenge, we rise to the occasion and we - girls, families, volunteers, and GSCO staff - are doing that right now.

GSCO is working with Little Brownie Bakers, GSUSA, and our key volunteers, as we consider girl and adult safety and the uncertainties before us. Know that for the 2021 cookie season, the core aspects of the Girl Scout Cookie Program will be the same, but how some things are done will be a bit different. 

eBudde will open in early November to approved service unit cookie managers and troop cookie managers (SUCMs and TCMs).

Service unit training will start mid-November. TCM training will begin in December.  More detailed “just-in-time” training and information will be shared leading up to the start of the program in January and continue through February and March.

Look for more updates to come on the this page, the GSCO Blog, and Facebook page.


Every Wednesday at noon or at 6 p.m.

Join the Product Program Specialist team for open discussions on different topics each week. Ask the questions you have and get them answered GSCO staff. 

No need to register, just click the link and join the team to talk about all things cookie.
