Inspiring and Influencing Our Future

Through its partnership with Girl Scouts of the USA, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, and Junior Achievement, Toyota Financial Services (TFS) supports youth financial empowerment, workforce readiness and skills and leadership development.

TFS’ support for youth organizations is team member-driven. “Our influence in the community is only possible through the deep involvement of our team members; their strong spirit of volunteerism and community service is a reflection of the Toyota Way,” says Karen Ideno, TFS Group Vice President, National Trustee of Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Executive Sponsor of the Toyota North America Advisory Council for WIIT.

Parisa Urban is an example of that community service spirit. As part of a daylong financial education program for Girl Scouts, Parisa and a group of Toyota women organized a “dress for your day” fashion show at Toyota headquarters to teach girls appropriate attire for different work occasions. A Persian who was born and raised in Iran, then lived in Canada before joining Toyota in the U.S. in 2007, Parisa hopes to inspire in young, diverse girls a mindset of not allowing gender, ethnic culture, and place of origin to keep them from achieving their impossible.
