What? Budget Buddies is recruiting for upcoming Girl's LIFE (Learning Independence through Financial Literacy) programs. Girl's LIFE is designed to apply our financial literacy and empowerment curriculum to a teen audience. We strongly believe that teaching young women core financial principles when they are on the cusp of independent financial lives is essential to the full economic empowerment for women in adulthood. We partner workshop material with one-on-one mentor relationships for each girl in our program.
