Proud to partner with Citi

With Citi’s partnership, we are bringing Girl Rising to additional schools around the country, expanding our web platform for educators, and adding exciting new materials to our existing curriculum.


The Financial Empowerment Module

Managing money is critical to independence, yet most young people receive little or no financial education. Our new module, created by the Global Financial Literacy Excellence Center at the George Washington University, is designed to ensure that young people have the skills they need to become empowered individuals in a rapidly changing world.

Using the stories of Girl Rising, these lessons encourage self-efficacy and teach concepts of financial literacy to students in upper elementary, middle and high school.

Getting Started

Project Based Lessons 

The Opportunity Cost and Evaluating Needs versus Wants lessons are aligned for upper elementary through high school. Gaining Financial Empowerment is designed for use with middle through high school students. The lessons may be paired with Wadley, Senna and Ruksana's stories from Girl Rising, available for free with our curriculum.

Downloadable Worksheets 

Designed to pair with the project based lessons, these worksheets can be printed and shared.

Fact Sheets 

Enhance student learning with additional context around two themes.
