A fundamental component of a successful adult life is financial literacy — a practical skill that girls develop in Girl Scouts that 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. In this financial literacy workshop, girls will cover budgeting, goal setting, career planning, planning for large purchases (such as a home, a car, vacations), giving back, investing, and entrepreneurship.
Girl Scout Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassador Girl Scouts are invited to attend this Financial Literacy workshop on Saturday, May 18, 2013 from 3:30PM – 6PM at PGMA. The cost for Troop 3480 girls is $7. Other girl scouts are welcome to attend for $15. Limited spaces are available.
The workshop facilitator, Vanessa Bright, is founder of Financial Futures Now, an organization dedicated to educating America’s youth on the basic principles of financial literacy and providing them with the skills to become financially free and fiscally responsible adults.
