About Us

The Connecticut Jump$tart Coalition is comprised of organizations, government agencies, financial institutions, and corporations. Working together we are able to join forces to improve the personal financial literacy of Connecticut's youth.

Officially incorporated in Connecticut in 2005 by Craig Newkirk, the coalition is a proud state affiliate of the national Jump$tart organization. With funding support from Bank of America, the leadership was transferred to Junior Achievement of Southwest New England, with ongoing support from the Office of the State Treasurer, State Department of Banking, State Department of Education, Centers for Financial Education and Connecticut Association of Boards of Education.
