Scouts are used to dealing with money. They fundraise for charities, budget for camps, and raise money for jamborees as part of everything they do to build skills for life. Now, Scouts have developed badges that focus on fun, active ways for young people to build their money skills.
HSBC UK have supported Scouts to create a fun and practical new Money Skills Activity Badge for Beavers and Cubs. They have created the badge and activities using research from Young Money and working with volunteers and young people across the UK. Scouts are exploring how our money choices can benefit our community, learning about how different people use their money, and having plenty of fun with hands-on activities.
