Make a difference locally!
Organizations and individuals can make great impact at the local level.
Here are just a few ways that you can make a difference:
Financial Institutions: Volunteer to work with a local school or
district to provide classroom presentations or teacher support.
Educators: Incorporate personal finance within your curriculum.
Personal finance has been taught successfully to students of all ages
and within many core and elective subjects. For more resources, go to Clearinghouse and search according to your grade and subject matter.
Policy Makers: Consider ways to incorporate personal finance education
into your school's curriculum and teacher professional development
programs. Remember, too, that you need not reinvent the wheel. The
National Jump$tart Coalition can help you identify successful models.
Parents: Begin teaching your child about personal finance at a young
age and continue to reinforce these skills. See the Links section or
visit the Clearinghouse for more ideas on teaching your child about personal finance matters.
