Access fun and educational activities that you can incorporate into your classroom.
The National JumpStart Clearinghouse allows you to search and browse hundreds of personal financial education resources (many of which are free), based on criteria including:
- Audience (6th grade, 12th grade, college age, adults, etc.)
- Material type (book, DVD, game, lesson plan, teaching guide, etc.)
- Language (English, Spanish, etc.)
- Target Users (classroom teachers, after-school, home, etc.)
- Topic (planning & money management, credit & debt, saving & investing, etc.)
While the coalition does not endorse curricula, we are pleased to promote trusted youth personal financial curricula that in many cases are free to educators and may involve direct educator training.
