What We Do

The Connecticut Jump$tart Coalition encourages the development and implementation of programs to educate young people about personal financial management and responsibility. This includes convening conferences for students and training sessions for teachers; supporting financial education programs in-school, after-school and in conjunction with community partners.  The coalition also is working to:

  • Build awareness of the need for financial education for young people
  • Research barriers to financial preparedness, or capacity or independence
  • Provide an inventory of financial education programs and curricula available in the state
  • Ensure that financial literacy is an important part of discussions of public policy on both a state and local level.

The Connecticut Jump$tart Coalition believes that today, more than ever, students must be financially literate in order to be prepared for college, careers, and the increasingly complex economic demands of our 21st-century global marketplace. As a state, Connecticut can and must do more to get its students ready for those roles. If you’re interested in being part of CTJump$tart’s efforts to give our students the personal finance knowledge they need to succeed, please contact the Chapter’s president.
