Girl Scouts Learn to Save Savvy

Representative Paul DeMarco visited the Girl Scouts’ Saving Savvy: Hands on Banking program on October 1 at the Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama headquarters in Inverness. Girls learned the fundamentals of savings accounts and interest and were taught the importance of money management skills, the role of banks in helping people save money and understand interest and saving. To understand the interest in savings, girls make “monster” banks, performed a skit about how money changes hands, and held discussion using Wells Fargo’s Hands on Banking materials.
