WHAT WE DO As the nation’s leading advocate for youth financial literacy, the Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy® is proud to conduct its seventh annual conference devoted specifically to Pre-K to 12th grade classroom teachers of personal finance. This year’s event will take place Nov. 6-8 at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, just outside Washington, D.C.
WHAT WE OFFER
This conference, generously underwritten by Experian and Wells Fargo Foundation, and supported by dozens of sponsors, will offer classroom educators an opportunity to see, learn about, and try educational resources that can be integrated immediately into current lesson plans. They will also be able to attend informative workshops under three different strands — Content/Curriculum, Personal Development “101” for those newer to this subject matter, and Personal Development “AP” for those ready to tackle more advance content. The conference also offers teachers an opportunity to meet with the leaders from finance and education and network with colleagues from across the country.
WHAT WE NEED
Exhibitors. Educators continue to say that the Exhibit Hall is one of the most popular elements of the conference. The dedicated Exhibit Hall session offers the opportunity to share and discuss financial education resources with teachers who are eager to use them the first day they return to the classroom! Visit jumpstart.org/NEC for more details.
Sponsors. To provide this professional development experience at a price that teachers and schools can afford, Jump$tart needs help from generous sponsors. All sponsors get a complimentary exhibit table and exhibitor registration as well as great visibility with educators and stakeholders. Sponsors are needed at a variety of levels, starting at just $2,000. Visit jumpstart.org/NEC for more details.
Outreach to Teachers. Partners, state coalitions, and friends, please share this conference information with your teacher lists, social media outlets, and others in your circles.
