For Cookie Entrepreneurs

  • Girl Scouts San Diego is hosting our first ever virtual Cookie Rally on Friday, Dec. 4.
  • Initial orders are due Monday, Dec. 14 and Digital Cookie will open for pre-orders Monday, Jan. 11. Details below.

When you participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, you're doing more than just helping your customers stock up on delicious treats (and having lots of fun). You're doing it with a goal in mind. Whether that goal is a pizza party, a community project, or your first overnight trip with your troop, you know how many packages you need to make it happen.

Getting Started

Give your Girl Scout permission to participation in the 2021 cookie program by completing the 2020-2021 Product Programs Participation Agreement, then send a copy to your troop cookie manager or leader. Troop leaders can find information on how to prepare your troop to participate in the cookie program at our Quick Start webpage

Participation Form

Parents: Use the 2020-2021 Product Program Participation Agreement button below to sign up your girl for both the cookie and fall product programs. Then forward the confirmation email to your troop cookie manager or troop leader to notify troop leadership that you have given your Girl Scout permission to participate.

Padres de familia/tutores: Use el botón Acuerdo de Participación Programas de Productos 2020- 2021 abajo para inscribir a su niña en los programas de productos de otoño y de galletas. Luego, reenvíe el correo electrónico de confirmación a su coordinador de galletas de la tropa (TCM) o líder de tropa para notificarles que le ha dado permiso a su Girl Scout de participar.

Individually Registered Members (IRMs)

An IRM is a girl participating in Girl Scouts independently of a troop. Girls in troops may also participate in the cookie program as IRMs if their troop is not participating; it will not affect their membership status. IRMs must have a trained adult who is registered and background screened to oversee their participation.

When you’re ready to take the cookie program training for IRM parents and guardians:

  1. Visit
  2. Enter your name, Girl Scout email, and the course code: IRM2021 .
  3. Watch for a training invitation email from Litmos (if you don’t see it, check your spam folder).
  4. Select the link in the email to begin viewing the course.

The code and course link will only work once. If you’ve already logged in with the code but need to return to the course to begin or finish up, visit and login with your username (Girl Scout email). If you don’t remember your password, or haven’t set one, select the “I don’t remember my password option” to set/reset it. Once logged in, you’ll see the 2021 IRM cookie program icon on your dashboard. Select it to begin. Need help? See technical help or contact
