I deliver comprehensive financial literacy lessons tailored for Girls Scouts of all ages, facilitating the achievement of various badges. Utilizing resources provided by Charles Schwab, I conduct two one-hour sessions either in person or via Zoom, guiding the troop members to earn their respective badges while instilling the importance of financial literacy for their future adulthood.
In recognizing the Girl Scouts' need for space and support to foster growth, my program aims to equip them with the skills to make informed financial decisions and cultivate a positive relationship with money. The Financial Literacy badges offer a platform for Girl Scouts of all ages to engage in hands-on play while learning and practicing essential financial skills such as budget creation, goal setting, decision-making, and teamwork.
