Jump$tart Arizona’s mission is to improve the financial literacy of the state’s youth. As part of the national Jump$tart Arizona continues the focus of the coalition by encouraging curriculum enrichment to ensure that basic financial management skills are attained during the educational experience of K-12.
The organization provides several different programs and services to help raise awareness:
National Educator Conference – provides classroom teachers with resources and information to improve their own levels of financial literacy in order to better teach financial literacy.
Financial Foundation for Educators – teacher training initiatives designed to standardize teacher training in personal finance to ensure consistency and rigor within national teacher training programs.
Financial Literacy Month – celebrated every April to increase the awareness and knowledge of financial literacy
Businesses and schools are encouraged to join the initiative to further promote personal financial literacy.
