Create a campaign or strategy to let customers know how your business is environmentally and socially responsible.
Senior My Cookie Network Badge Activity
Share How Your Business Is Responsible
Time needed: 30 minutes
- Poster boards
To grow your support network, you’ll need to convince people that your business is a worthy cause.
Go online to the Girl Scout Cookie Program FAQ page to read the social responsibility section. How is your business environmentally responsible? How does it help others?
Create a social responsibility strategy and include how you’ll let your customers and supporters know about it. You might plan to share it on social media or create a video to share.
Your video or social media campaign will have a story to tell, so create it on storyboards.
What is the narrative you want to share? What is behind the power and promise of Girl Scout Cookies?
Start with an image, word, or mix of both. Keep drawing until you’ve told a story. Imagine your storyboards as a series of social media posts or scenes for a video you can film.
Hang them on a wall and make adjustments for the order that works best.
Get feedback from trusted adults on your storyboards and strategy. Feedback will help improve the ideas and decisions you make as a cookie entrepreneur. Make changes based on the feedback.
Words to know:
Brand: The name, symbol, mark, or logo a company uses to identify their product. It’s also the way other people, especially your customers, think about and experience your product.
Feedback: What people think about your ideas or how you run your business.
Social responsibility: Acting in the best interests of society and the environment.
Think about these questions:
Why is it important for businesses to be socially and environmentally responsible?
How do you think it helps their business?
Why do you think it’s important for the Girl Scout values?
How did getting feedback help change your storyboards and strategy?
