The practical skills girls develop in Girl Scouting will serve them for the rest of their lives. Financial literacy can help girls set financial goals and gain the confidence they need to ultimately take control of their own financial future. By developing money management skills early in life, girls learn how to increase their income, become responsible consumers, create a budget, build and manage credit, and save and invest for whatever’s next. Here are some ideas to get you started:
- Hold a Workshop for Younger Girls: Teach younger girls about how to be money savvy! Attend their troop meeting, host a class at a local community center or even make a video.
- Hands on Banking: Want to take charge of your own finances and reach your goals? Whether you want to build your credit, your investments, or your own small business; invest in the market, a home, or higher education; shop for a loan, buy a car, or open your first bank accounts, the Hands on Banking program offers all the basic money tools, skills, and information you need. Pick your age level to get started.
