Jump$tart Coalition’s Teen Teach-in​

The Jump$tart Teen Teach-In is a nationwide program that has garnered an enthusiastic response from elementary school teachers, high school teachers, and their students. The innovative peer-to-peer educational model, which brings high school students studying personal finance into the elementary school classroom to teach a financial lesson, benefits all involved and is a ton of fun! It also helps cement high school students’ knowledge of personal finance by making them “teacher for a day,” while elementary school students get early exposure to financial concepts, and the accompanying earned and social media coverage helps start community discussions about the need for youth financial education in the classroom. And personal finance educators often get some well-deserved recognition from their schools and local media!
