guide your money...

... is a NEW program for girls 7–12 years old. 

Girl Guides Australia is proud to announce the launch of its new Guide Your Money Foundations program. The program is designed for girls aged 7-12 years. There 6 topics and each one has games and activities that can be adapted to suit a range of units and ages. Using Guide Your Money Foundations, girls will learn about making positive money choices, become more aware of what influences their spending behaviour and build some basic good money habits. 

Girl Guides Australia is grateful to Financial Literacy Australia for funding the development of the program. With their support GGA was able to partner with specialist financial literacy consultants, learning designers and evaluation specialists to build a great program.  The program resources include activity instructions and templates for each topic and leader’s notes. 

The Foundations booklet is now available through filling out the preorder form below. Please note, that due to limited numbers we will only be issuing one booklet per District in the first round of offers. Successful recipients will be issued an invoice for $5 to cover postage and handling.

Girls who complete at least four topics are eligible for a Guide Your Money badge. Full details of how to get your badge are available on the Girl Guides Australia website – just click on the Guide Your Money link at www.girlguides.org.au
