Working together, we can improve youth financial literacy in South Carolina.

If you're concerned about students learning how to handle money successfully, you've come to the right place!

The Jump$tart South Carolina Coalition is a non-profit organization of individuals representing business, government and education, joined to improve the personal financial literacy of South Carolina's youth. South Carolina Jump$tart Coalition's objectives are to:

  • Enhance and improve financial literacy levels of South Carolina's K-12 educators and students;
  • Promote and develop public awareness of the importance of financial literacy; and
  • Nurture personal financial literacy within the state through grassroots initiative.

We're celebrating Financial Literacy Month!

Partners, send us your events for sharing with SC Jump$tart Coalition members.
