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.

The North Dakota Jump$tart Coalition is proud to offer two scholarships for North Dakota educators to attend the National Educator Conference sponsored by the National Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy, held in Los Angeles, CA, November 8-10, 2014.
This is a great opportunity for a teacher to learn new information to bring back to their classroom. The teachers that have gone in the previous years, have only good comments about the conference.
If you are interested or know a teacher that might be, please have the application completed by September 30, 2014.
