Girls Inc. Smart programs help girls increase their financial knowledge, explore their educational and career options, and participate in hands-on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) activities. Smart programs include:
Economic Literacy uses hands-on projects or experiences to help girls understand financial concepts and prepares them to be in control of their own financial futures.
Operation SMART (Science, Math, and Relevant Technology) empowers girls to explore STEM disciplines by engaging them in experiments to find logical solutions to real-world problems.
In Lunch Bunch, girls explore educational and career options during lunch with professional women. Through practical activities and discussions, girls are able to envision themselves as independent, successful professionals.
These programs have been supported by the TCU Foundation since 2012. Their most recent grant of $3,000 is currently supporting costs for the 2014-2015 school year.
The TCU Foundation was established to support the Credit Union Vision of being a positive force in the communities served by TCU. The mission of the TCU Foundation is “to promote financial literacy, education and other opportunities and causes supported by the membership, which directly benefit the communities in which TCU operates.”
Thanks again to the TCU Foundation for its generous support of Girls Inc. Smart programs!
