Dollar $cholar is a program of the Women’s Initiative of the United Way of Central Massachusetts, a member-run, volunteer-based women’s group whose mission is to ignite positive change for girls through philanthropy and women’s leadership. The program is geared for the middle-school girl, providing basic financial literacy skills and valuable knowledge to support their college, career, and life plans.
The Dollar $cholar Virtual Program features interviews with women mentors, facilitator-led financial literacy lessons, and a virtual money scavenger hunt. Once all four virtual sections are completed, girls are entered to win a free Chromebook! Only girls ages 10-14 who live or attend school in the United Way of Central Massachusetts’ service area of Worcester and surrounding 29 towns are eligible to be entered to win a Chromebook.
