All girls who participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program use 10 Basic Safety Guidelines.
1. SHOW YOU’RE A GIRL SCOUT
Wear a Girl Scout membership pin, uniform or Girl Scout clothing (e.g. a Girl Scout T-Shirt) to clearly identify yourself as a Girl Scout.
2. BUDDY UP
Always use the buddy system. It’s not just safe, it’s fun.
3. BE STREETWISE
Become familiar with the areas and neighborhoods where you will be selling Girl Scout products. Contact your local police department if you’re unsure about an area or neighborhood.
4. PARTNER WITH ADULTS
Adults must accompany Girl Scout Daisies, Brownies and Juniors when they are taking orders, selling or delivering product. Girls in grades 6-12 must be supervised by an adult when selling door-to-door and must never sell alone. Adults must be present at all time during cookie booth sales.
5. PLAN AHEAD
Be prepared for emergencies, and always have a plan for safeguarding money.
6. DO NOT ENTER
Never enter the home or vehicle of a person when you are selling or making deliveries. Avoid selling to people in vehicles, except at designated drive-thru cookie booths, or going into alleys.
7. SELL IN THE DAYTIME
Sell only during daylight hours, unless accompanied by an adult.
8. PROTECT PRIVACY
Girls’ names, home addresses or email addresses should never be given out to customers. Protect customer privacy by not sharing their information except as necessary for the product sale.
