2017 Financial Literacy Summit
On October 13, 2017, over 100 professionals, policymakers and financial literacy supporters joined the Connecticut Jump$tart Coalition to explore the challenge of using financial education to stem the student debt crisis. We thank all of the sponsors, speakers and, especially, attendees who made the 2017 Connecticut Financial Literacy Summit our best conference to date.
Among the highlights, keynoter Adam Carroll — financial advocate, educator and documentarian — offered his views on how our digital currency culture makes it more difficult for young people to understand the full impact of their borrowing decisions. He also gave attendees an extensive list of approaches and ideas to bring students back to the “real” world of money.
