WHAT WE DO:
The Jump$tart Coalition® for Personal Financial Literacy is a national coalition of organizations dedicated to improving the financial literacy of pre-kindergarten through college-age youth by providing advocacy, research, standards and educational resources. The Jump$tart Coalition strives to prepare youth for life-long successful financial decision-making.
WHAT WE OFFER:
As the nation’s leading advocate for youth financial literacy, the Jump$tart Coalition will proudly conduct its fourth annual conference devoted specifically to PreK-12 classroom teachers of personal finance in Chicago, Illinois. This conference, generously underwritten by Experian and Wells Fargo Foundation and supported by a variety of other sponsors, offers classroom educators an opportunity to see, learn about, and try educational resources to integrate immediately into current lesson plans; to attend informative workshops under three different strands—advocacy, curriculum/content, and personal growth; to meet with nationwide leaders from finance and education; and to network with colleagues from across the country!
WHAT WE NEED:
Calling all Exhibitors! Need teachers to learn about your resources? We still have available exhibitor spaces, but they are going fast! Exhibits must focus on financial education for PreK through 12th grade students.
Calling all Classroom Teachers! Registration will open September 4th and will be received on a first-come, first-served basis. The registration fee is $395 and includes a two-night stay at the JW Marriott Hotel in downtown Chicago, all conference meals, and all conference materials.
Jump$tart National Educator Conference:
the National Educator Conference, the Jump$tart Coalition offers its coalition
partners a platform to share their resources and expertise with the education
community, by discounting the exhibit fee and considering partner
representatives first for speaking roles in conference sessions.
