The Alabama Jump$tart Coalition seeks to increase financial literacy for all K-16 students in Alabama by collaborating with other organizations in Alabama to promote financial literacy.


The Alabama Jump$tart Coalition envisions a time when all Alabama young people will be financially literate and equipped to achieve lifetime financial goals upon graduation from high school.  http://www.jumpstart.org/reality-check.html

Jump$tart’s National Educator Conference was designed, specifically, with classroom teachers in mind—combining content knowledge with teaching techniques.    Additionally, many of our funders have sponsored the event to meet their own objectives of supporting teachers and schools; therefore, classroom teachers are the focus for this conference event
