Girls, and often their parents, are not fully educated or comfortable with money and financial concepts. This half-day program is aimed at girls ages 7 to 17 in underserved communities, in an effort to influence them at an early stage. The program uses practical examples within a fun-filled, hands-on approach that reinforces the learning. Participants come out of the program with an understanding of needs vs. wants, advantages of saving and investing, and pros & cons of using credit cards.
The Interest Exercise teaches girls how quickly interest adds up on a credit card purchase to learn the true ‘cost’ of an item once it is finally paid. A Grown Up Budget teaches girls how to balance buying what she needs with what she wants.
Girls will grow up with a positive understanding of money concepts
