How do you teach your kids about money? If you're involved with or concerned about students learning how to handle money successfully - you've come to the right place. The Clearinghouse is a database of personal finance resources available from a variety of education providers such as government, business and non-profit organizations. Once you find a material of interest, you can order it directly from the source. Many of the materials are low cost or free of charge. Teachers often use these personal finance teaching materials to support their state's standards in economics, business, math and family and consumer science.
The Nevada Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy seeks to improve the personal financial literacy of young adults.
Jump$tart's purpose is to evaluate the financial literacy of young adults; develop, disseminate, and encourage the use of standards for grades K-12; and promote the teaching of personal finance.
