They are taking part in the Girl Scout Cookie Program; the largest girl-led business program in the world It encourages scouts to build confidence and use their earnings to improve their communities.
From Feb. 22 to the end of March, Girl Scouts of Hawaiʻi will be selling cookies at various locations across the islands.
Prior to booth sales, Girl Scouts have the opportunity to reach potential customers beyond their friends and family with Digital Cookie.
Digital Cookie is an online platform in which the girls can create their own site and invite customers to purchase cookies and track their sales goals.
Customers can also download the newly enhanced Girl Scout Cookie Finder app, free for your mobile device or tablet.

Chang says the Girl Scout Cookie Program is more than just cookies, the program encourages Girl Scouts to set off on new adventures, learn from mistakes and to strive to become young ladies of courage, confidence and character.
The program teaches girls the “5 Skills” of goal setting, decision-making, money management, people skills and business ethics.
All proceeds raised through cookie sales stay in Hawaii, and are used for local troop activities and community service projects.
From outdoor adventures, STEM activities and helping community members in need, Girl Scouts offers an outlet for girls and their families to explore similar interests while also providing them with a chance to learn, grow and succeed together.
