Make a Difference Locally
Both organizations and individuals can make a great impact at the local level. Here are just a few ways you can make a difference:
- Financial Institutions: Volunteer to work with a local school or district to provide classroom presentations or teacher support.
- Educators: Incorporate personal finance within your curriculum. Personal finance has been taught successfully to students of all ages and within many core and elective subjects. For more resources, go to Clearinghouse and search according to your grade and subject matter.
- Policy Makers: Consider ways to incorporate personal finance education into your school’s curriculum and teacher professional development programs. Remember, you need not reinvent the wheel. The Pennsylvania Jump$tart Coalition can help you identify successful models.
- Parents: Begin teaching your child about personal finance at a young age and continue to reinforce these skills. Need help? Contact a partner organization or check out the materials in the National Jump$tart Coalition’s Clearinghouse.
