Jump Starting Financial Literacy

Hands Holding PlantThe Jump$tart Coalition is a national organization dedicated to providing critical financial education to America’s youth – and we’re finding ways to help them! The organization believes that the financial education of our young people is a key element to the financial success of the nation going forward, and is headed by a mixture of private, government, and nonprofit leaders; and a small number of professional staff.

We are sponsoring the coalition’s efforts to educate youth here in Washington, D.C., and will be attending Financial Literacy Day on Capitol Hill this year. FSI staff has worked with Jump$tart in the past and we look forward to continuing to find ways to get involved with their efforts. In particular, we’re working on ways to connect our interested membership with their local Jump$tart organizations and initiatives and finding ways to leverage our members’ expertise in support of financial literacy efforts across the country.
