We are excited to announce RI Jump$tart’s newest partnership with Next Gen Personal Finance which will provide additional PD opportunities for you starting in February 2021 and continuing through the spring. Next Gen Personal Finance (NGPF) is a national nonprofit that is expanding access to personal finance education by delivering free professional development and curriculum.
Over the next six months, we will be collaborating on the Partnership for Professional Development Initiative.
What does this mean for you?
Collaborating and connecting with other personal finance teachers has become more important than ever. That is why we are so excited to collaborate with NGPF on these three upcoming events. Each of these events will include multiple opportunities for teachers to work together to share ideas and best practices while also walking away with new resources to implement immediately.
