Through Girl Scouts Get Fin LIT, ReisUP presents web-enabled and video-based personal finance programming with Girl Scouts’ Southeastern New England chapter in order to help members earn their financial literacy badges.
ReisUP will be tailoring its flagship program, LIT, to meet specific Girl Scouts badges by age group. This pilot version houses the educational videos and resources for three identified badges and age groups. Girl Scouts will be able to log in, complete the lessons, and earn these badges at their leisure.
Because the platform is accessible 24/7, girls will be able to learn about money when it’s convenient for them, rather than having to block off time and travel to an in-person workshop.
This program serves as a testing ground to determine the viability of and desire for online financial literacy programming for Girl Scouts nationwide.
