ND Jump$tart CoalitionThe members and partners of the North Dakota Jump$tart Coalition strongly believe that having financial skills is vital for a successful and prosperous life. We believe that all North Dakotans deserve to have the fundamental knowledge necessary to make important decisions that affect their financial health, their families and their futures.

Established in 2006, North Dakota Jump$tart is a nonprofit organization that actively works to improve the financial literacy of our citizens. We educate the public through speaking engagements and workshops, provide information and materials, and collaborate with public and private organizations and law makers on various projects throughout the state. Whether you're looking for ways to develop money smarts at home, in your classroom, organization or business, the North Dakota Jump$tart Coalition has the tools and connections you need to make it happen.

Real World CampReal World Camp will be held on Friday, March 13, 2015 on the Bismarck State College campus. This all day free event will teach students the life skills of credit, budgeting, wants vs. needs and more!
