According to the Girl Scout Research Institute study Having It All: Girls and Financial Literacy, girls know they need a solid financial foundation, but few feel confident about their skills.
Girl Scouts and Toyota Financial Services (TFS) are changing that, through a multiyear partnership developed to help girls become self-reliant, financially informed, and capable of leveraging their talent and business values to make the world a better place.
Thanks to the partnership, every Girl Scout Junior, Cadette, Senior, and Ambassador can take part in financial-planning activities that let them practice real-life scenarios, like saving for college and building good credit—important stuff! One way Girl Scouts and TFS are preparing girls to take charge of their financial education and future is with the TFS "Driving My Financial Future" Tip Sheet—a key resource to help Girl Scouts further strengthen the skills they hone when they earn Financial Literacy badges. These badges can be earned throughout the year and target such practical situations as setting up a budget and engaging in philanthropy.
Efforts like this one build young women’s financial literacy, empowering them for a successful future—tomorrow and in the decades to come.
So what are you waiting for? Accelerate your girl’s future with our awesome Tip Sheet!
**Through a collaborative project with Girl Scouts of the USA and Toyota Financial Services, GSNETX provides Financial Empowerment curriculum to over 1,000 Middle School girls in Dallas and East Texas each year in the Girl Scouting in the School Day program. Girls also participate in financial education activities and field trips to Toyota facilities to learn more about STEM and career exploration. We'd also like to extend their gratitude to our corporate partners in working to ensure that girls have access to financial literacy opportunities.
