Citi Progress Makers: Girl Rising


Many high school students lack the skills and self-confidence needed to succeed. Girl Rising, a global education movement, helps inspire them — and with Citi’s support, has added financial empowerment to its US curriculum. More students are now prepared to reach their full potential.

As part of their global campaign for young people’s education and empowerment, Girl Rising created a set of tools that help educators teach practical skills to their students. With Citi’s help, Girl Rising was able to add a new financial empowerment module to their curriculum. Students who participate in Girl Rising’s program end up more confident and more aware of the challenges they will face as adults. It offers them a new perspective on their education and a belief in their own power to create change in the world.
