Cadette Scouts are in the 6th to 8th grade and many may have not even thought about what it takes to really afford that dream home, dream vacation, or what their dream jobs will allow them to afford. This badge is a way for girls to explore their dreams with some fun activities, and at the same time take it a step further and actually figure out how to finance their current dreams at this point, and talk about the things they may need to give up or pull back on depending on what they can afford.
As adults we know what it is like to have a job to afford what we want and sadly knowing our limits of what we can’t afford. As teenagers many of us just had in our heads we could afford anything we wanted, just get a job and work and you will have the money to get whatever you want. As we all know that is not the reality of life and this badge will help the girls put a better picture on what they need to do to finance their dreams.
With these activities your girls can start early to daydream about their future, what type of job they will have, what type of home they would love to have, vacations they will take, charities they will help, but simply sitting down and doing a bunch of research is pretty boring. So instead why don’t we make it a little more fun
