Girl Scouts Experience the Fed

Daisies, Brownies, and Juniors Program, 10-11:30am

You work for it, spend it, and save it. We count it, sort it, and store it. Have you ever stopped to think about what money is and why it’s valuable? At Girl Scouts Experience the Fed, explore the characteristics of money while discovering everyday items that were once used as money.

Cadettes, Ambassadors, and Seniors Program, 2-:3:30pm

Money is all around us, but have you ever stopped to think how your human capital can affect your future cash flow? At Girl Scouts Experience the Fed, explore the idea of human capital and consider how your unique set of knowledge, experience and skills can help shape your future. You’ll also learn what the Fed is and how your human capital may relate to the many jobs at the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond.

Girl Scouts will earn a patch and make a swap as a reminder of their day. Space is limited and registration is required. A $6 fee applies per Girl Scout to cover patch and administrative fees. Payments can be made to Girl Scouts at registration.
