The Jump$tart National Educator Conference:

  • Is devoted to the teaching of personal finance in PreK-12 classrooms.
  • Subsidizes costs for teachers, making it affordable despite economic conditions.
  • Improves teachers’ own level of financial literacy.
  • Introduces teachers to new information, techniques, and resources to help them bring personal finance to life in their classrooms.
  • Gives teachers the opportunity to network with resource providers, industry leaders, and—most importantly—fellow financial educators from across the country.

Through the National Educator Conference, Jump$tart offers its coalition partners a platform to share their resources and expertise with the education community, by discounting the exhibit fee and considering partner representatives first for speaking roles in conference sessions.
