Financial literacy workshop

image004 image007

On Sunday, December 11, 2016 eleven Cadette and Senior Girl Scouts came together in Stapleton to participate in a financial literacy workshop hosted by Operation HOPE. Operation HOPE’s “Banking on Our Future” program teaches students in middle and high school basic financial literacy skills and how financial management is tied to dignity.

The workshop started with a discussion about dignity, which is defined as being worthy of esteem and respect. Operation HOPE links financial literacy with dignity and the need to invest in yourself and your community. The girls then learned about budgeting and banking. In pairs, girls were given a profession and created a budget based on their specified income. There were intense debates on whether they could realistically live without electricity in order to afford Starbucks or if they could ride a bike instead of owning a car to save money. 

During the section on banking, girls learned why banks are important, how banks protect your money, and why it is better to put your money into a bank than hiding it in your mattress. The girls learned about checking accounts and practiced writing checks.

One of the session facilitators was a Girl Scout who made sure the girls understood the connection between the financial literacy lessons they were learning with the business skills girls gain through the cookie sale. This event was held at Your Soul’s Movement Performing Arts Center in Stapleton who graciously supported us in supplying a location. This was a fantastic and engaging workshop and we look forward to offering a larger event in the spring!
