Jump$tart is a national nonprofit coalition of more than 100 organizations from business, finance, academia, education, government and other sectors, as well as a network of 51 state affiliates, which share a commitment to “financial smarts for students.”
The Jump$tart Coalition works to raise awareness about the importance of financial literacy and the need for financial education, especially among youth; fosters collaboration among financial literacy stakeholders; and promotes and supports effectiveness in financial education endeavors.
We want to put effective financial education in every school in America,.. and we need your help. It all starts by checking your school.
Jump$tart believes that qualified, supported, appreciated teachers are a key element of effective financial education and we created the Jump$tart Financial Foundations for Educators (J$FFE) Model and National Educator Conference to help meet their need for professional development.
The National Standards in K-12 Personal Finance Education delineate the personal finance knowledge and ability that young people should acquire throughout their kindergarten through 12th grade school years to emerge as fully prepared adult consumers.
