School Survey: The Connecticut Jump$tart Coalition conducted a survey to determine what each school district in the state is offering for personal finance classes. This information is important, as this data will be used for analysis and examination for future endeavors and offerings.
Connecticut Science Center: Connecticut Jump$tart has partnered with the Department of Consumer Protection and Square One Financial Education to conduct budgeting workshops at the Connecticut Science Center. Budgeting for Life, a financial literacy program for Connecticut teenagers, was developed by CT Jump$tart Board Member Samantha Cross of Square One Financial Education. Through these workshops teens that participate in the Science Center’s robotics program learn the importance of budgeting, discover the key components of a successful budget, and gain tips to budget effectively.
