Girls see a future in which they are financially independent and empowered. However, only 12 percent say they feel “very confident” making financial decisions.
Girl Scouts is dedicated to changing that number, giving girls the opportunity to gain valuable skills and become financially savvy not only through participation in the Girl Scout Cookie sale, but also via our financial literacy programs. After all, girls are the future leaders of our country and the future drivers of our economy, and whether they’re leading a Fortune 500 company or their households, money matters!
April marks the beginning of Financial Literacy Month, and all month long we’ll be sharing stats from our Girl Scout Research Institute study, Having It All: Girls and Financial Literacy, and sharing creative ways to get the girl in your life better equipped for a financially fit future.
Studies show that girls dream of living in a world where there are no gender gaps when it comes to their finances. Let’s make that dream a reality!
Happy Financial Literacy Month!
