The Online Model

Teachers asked… and we heard you!

You asked us for distance learning options for your professional development in financial literacy – for those many times when budgets, schedules, and a host of other challenges kept you from getting to the training events you wanted to attend. And today, virtual learning options are more critical than ever before.

J$FFE Online is a content-driven program created especially for teachers; but is really suitable for any adult learner. It was developed with a gift in kind and other generous support from our partners at National Endowment for Financial Education, Fidelity Investments and Charles Schwab and is based on the J$FFE Model. Like all Jump$tart resources, the program features content supplied by many Jump$tart partners.

  • Spending and Saving 
  • Credit, Debt and Identity Theft
  • Investments
  • Insurance

J$FFE Online is free, but you must register to receive the link to the online module and tell us if you want to receive confirmation of your professional development hours.

Not a Teacher?

Not a problem!  J$FFE Online and the J$FFE Model were developed with classroom teachers in mind—as a way of helping them become better teachers than they already are by improving their knowledge of and comfort with personal finance topics.  But, since J$FFE is content-based learning—that is, it doesn’t train teachers in how to teach, but rather, focuses on raising their own level of financial literacy—it is easily adaptable to other adult learners.

You’re in the right place!

We think J$FFE Online is particularly well suited for:

  • Social Workers — especially those who work with youth;
  • Parents who home-school their children and any parents or guardians who want to offer financial guidance for their kids;
  • Camp counselors, scout leaders, youth program administrators, child care providers, school counselors and administrators; but…

Anyone interested in improving their level of financial literacy is welcome!

We do recommend, however, that if you are looking for educational programs suitable for kids and teens, that you search our online clearinghouse of financial education resources, instead, for something more suitable to them.   And, while J$FFE is quite comprehensive, it was not designed for individuals planning to work in a financial profession.
