You may not realize it, but money and financial management affect much of your day-to-day life. When you earn your Financial Literacy badges, you learn how to save, build credit, research, comparison shop, and negotiate. These are the same skills you’ll need when deciding how to spend money and navigating your successful financial future.
Get ready to rev your engines, Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors! We’ve developed activities for each of you to learn savvy finance skills while earning your Financial Literacy badges.
How? First, take a look at the Financial Literacy badges in The Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting. Each level includes five steps for earning a badge.
Next, read through the financial planning activities for your badge level on this tip sheet from Toyota Financial Services. Note how the activities are matched to a step (or steps) from the original badges in The Girl’s Guide. Complete the activity for the corresponding step. These activities will help deepen your understanding and enhance your financial planning skills by using real-life situations. Once you’re finished, complete all five steps from The Girl’s Guide to earn your badge.
