#FLM19

The Jump$tart Coalition is the original promoter of April as Financial Literacy Month (sometimes called Financial Capability Month).

While every year, we use the month to promote the importance of financial education, this year we are on a mission to put effective financial education in every school in America. And you can help.  Learn more about our Check Your School initiative.

Another way to support us and financial education is to follow us on social media — on Facebook or Twitter. Every day we share tips, tools and information, but during #FLM19, we will address a different age group each week. We invite you to share the information below.

Happy Financial Literacy Month!

Week 1 – The Early Years

We begin this year’s Financial Literacy Month focusing on the youngest in our mission — those in preK to 4th grade.  While it may seem that the financial concepts are too much for those who aren’t using money on a regular basis, there are still ideas that you can plant to help them grow.

Find resources for kids in the Jump$tart Clearinghouse and check out the National Standards in K-12 Personal Finance Education for milestones to help you guide their financial literacy growth.

In the second week, we are focusing on middle school, which depending on where you are, can range from 5th to 8th grade — or thereabouts.

Week 3 – High School

High school is probably the time when most start thinking about sharing financial concepts with students. In the Jump$tart Clearinghouse, there are more resources and tools for this age than any other. It doesn’t mean the earlier years shouldn’t be a focus, but now you have a lot more to choose from.

Week 4 – College and Beyond

While the Jump$tart Coalition primarily focuses on preK through high school students, learning doesn’t stop once they leave those hallowed halls.

Instead, this is the time when thoughts often turn to student loans, buying a home and perhaps retirement — resources for which you can still find in the Jump$tart Clearinghouse.
