The 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$tart Coalition has the tools and connections you need to make it happen.
Registration is now open for the 5th Annual Jump$tart National Educator Conference, devoted to classroom educators who teach personal finance or want to incorporate money lessons into other subject matter, grades PreK-12. Join us November 1-3, 2013 at the JW Marriott, Washington, DC. Through the generosity of Experian, Wells Fargo Foundation, and many sponsors, Jump$tart is able to offer teachers the very special price of $395, which includes conference registration; conference meals and receptions; some materials, including a print copy of the National Standards in K-12 Personal Finance Education; and two nights’ hotel accommodations.
Teachers are offered optional, private sessions with financial planners. The exhibit hall is devoted to personal finance curricula and other resources. New for elementary grade teachers: money lessons to meet Common Core State Standards in math and ELA.
