Mad City Money gives youth a taste of the real world, complete with occupation, salary, family, and bills in a hands-on simulation event.

In this program, girls will visit merchants to purchase housing, transportation, food, clothing, child care, and other wants and needs while building a budget, compelling them to make everyday life decisions about spending and saving.

In this realistic and safe environment, girls will learn that financial mistakes have expensive consequences and everyone will walk away having learned how to:

  • Identify wants vs. needs
  • Budget household income
  • Basic check writing
  • Establish a savings plan

* Fun patch included at the conclusion of the program for every registered Girl Scout girl.
* This event is for 2019 registered Girl Scouts, and registered & approved adult volunteers. If an adult is responsible for a Girl Scout other than their own, the adult must be registered and background checked.
* For safety and supervision reasons, troops and individuals are not permitted to bring non-Girl Scouts or siblings.
* Girl/adult ratios must be followed unless otherwise indicated in the program description. Adults are expected to stay on the premises.

Cost: $6/girl, $1/adult
