Thanks to everyone who made MA Jump$tart’s Teach the Teacher Program in June a great success!
The MA Jump$tart Coalition, partnered with Fidelity Investments and the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston to offer a content-based teacher training event in the area of personal finance. This unique training opportunity was conducted using the Jump$tart Teacher Training Alliance Model. Attendees received professional credit hours for attending this event. High school and college educators also had the opportunity to earn their W!SE Certification in Personal Finance by taking and passing the W!SE Certification in Personal Finance Test!
The Mission of the Massachusetts Jump$tart Coalition is to:
- – Promote the teaching of personal finance in PreK-12 classrooms.
- – Improve teachers’ personal level of financial literacy.
- – Introduce teachers to new information, techniques, and resources and to help them bring personal finance into their classrooms.
