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.
Introducing: 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. It adds lessons about economic independence to the existing GR curriculum and uses the stories of Girl Rising to help students develop critical skills they’ll need to become empowered individuals in a changing world.
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.
Designed to pair with the project based lessons, these worksheets can be printed and shared.
Enhance student learning with additional context around two themes.
