While lack of financial literacy is a growing concern for many today, relatively little research has been conducted on how girls think about and experience money and finances. To address this gap, the Girl Scout Research Institute (GSRI) conducted a nationwide survey with over 1,000 girls ages 8−17 and their parents to better understand girls’ level of financial literacy and attitudes towards money.

Join Girl Scouts of the USA on May 13 for a webinar that will highlight both the results of the recently released GSRI study Having It All: Girls and Financial Literacy and Girl Scouts of the USA’s national program portfolio. As well, Louisa Quittman from the Department of the Treasury will provide a perspective on federal policy and resources for promoting financial education among young people.

Webinar presenters include:

  • Kimberlee Salmond, Senior Research Strategist at the Girl Scout Research Institute.
  • Louisa Quittman, Director of Financial Education at the U.S. Department of the Treasury.
  • Andrea Bastiani Archibald, Ph.D., Developmental Psychologist at Girl Scouts of the USA.

The national survey and webinar are conducted by the Girl Scouts of the USA. CEE supports their financial literacy efforts, although we are not formally connected with this work. If you have questions, please reach out to the Girl Scouts directly.

Our financial education program, Pathway to Financial Success, has helped bring related curriculum into more than 200 schools public high schools across the country since 2012. But more remains to be done. In two months, many students will be graduating. The question is: Are they prepared? Do they have the skills necessary to succeed? Read more…
