“Girls Just Want to Have Funds” Financial Boot Camp for Girls Offered at Two Public Libraries in July

Teen and tween girls from age 11 to 17 will be able to learn money and budgeting skills from an array of experts during the week-long free Financial Boot Camp for Girls scheduled at the Bethesda and Germantown libraries this summer.

Bethesda’s Boot Camp will be offered from Monday, July 7 through Friday, July 11, and Germantown’s program will run from Monday, July 14 through Friday, July 18. Both programs will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Attendees must commit to the week-long participation.

The sessions will provide the valuable money skills girls need to help them grow into financially secure and economically independent young women. Topics to be covered include budgeting, financial responsibility and decision making, investing, identity theft and consumer advertising.

The Boot Camps are hosted by Montgomery County Public Libraries and the Financial Literacy Organization for Women and Girls.
