Troop Champions

Troop Cookie Champions (TCCs) are an invaluable part of the Girl Scout Cookie Program. Volunteers like you are the champions, role models and cookie coaches who help girls discover their amazing potential and take steps towards achieving their goals.

In order to become the Troop Cookie Champion for your troop, follow these steps:

  1. Complete the Product Program Champion Agreement
  2. If you’ve completed your agreement, you’ll be granted access to the 2024 Cookie Program Training in gsLearn on or after December 4th. You must complete the training prior to receiving your troop materials. Not sure how to access gsLearn? Watch this How to Access gsLearn tutorial video.
    • Within 1-2 business days of completing your gsLearn training, you’ll be granted access to eBudde.
    • Volunteers who have completed their gsLearn training will get early access to eBudde and Digital Cookie starting December 18th.
  3. Connect with your Service Unit Cookie Champion for information on picking up your troop’s materials (order cards, receipt booklets, etc.).
  4. Set up a Caregiver meeting with your troop to review the Cookie Program materials, important dates and money management information.
