PlushMoney: Project Impact is a unique program brining together an eclectic group of smart, talented, and highly motivated young women for a summer of learning and leading. Over an eight-week time frame in the summer of 2012, participants will learn not only the basics of personal financial literacy, (everything from FICO scores to stock exchanges) but the intricacies of leadership as well. Instead of adopting a teacher-and-student structure, this one-of-a-kind program encourages each and every one of the young women involved to teach each other. Using webinars, blogs, and books, the women of Project Impact will learn real world skills including how to network professionally, increase business acumen, and track and manage money. Project Impact’s ultimate goal is for every participant to come away with the inspiration and practical knowledge to make a real impact on their world.
