Make a difference locally!
Organizations and individuals can make great impact at the local level. Here are just a few ways that you can make a difference:

  • 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 to 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.  Remember, too, that you need not reinvent the wheel.  The National Jump$tart Coalition can help you identify successful models.  For more information, e-mail Turn on JavaScript!  or call 1-888-45EDUCATE.
  • 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.
