  • 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 the Jump$tart 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.
  • Parents: Begin teaching your child about personal finance at a young age and continue to reinforce these skills. See the Links section or visit the Clearinghouse for more ideas on teaching your child about personal finance matters.
