The mission of the NH Jump$tart Coalition is to improve the financial literacy of pre-kindergarten through college-age youth by providing advocacy, research, activities, standards and educational resources. NH Jump$tart strives to prepare youth for life-long successful financial decision-making.
Our vision is for personal finance to be included in the education of all students. NH Jump$tart provides the collaboration needed to ensure this education. We have a unique proposition because NH Jump$tart is a coalition of organizations and individuals, which share a commitment to the financial education of youth. Working collaboratively, more resources and expertise are available to accomplish this task.
What We Do
Officially organized in 2000, we are a statewide, all volunteer, non-profit association dedicated to improving the personal financial literacy of children in the Granite State. We are also a proud state affiliate of the National Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy. The National Jump$tart Coalition, based in Washington, D.C., was first convened in 1995 and consists of over 200 organizations committed to improving the financial literacy of America’s youth.
NH Jump$tart understands the power of the community in shaping what is taught to our children. In a state where local educational control is important to its citizens, we work extremely hard in promoting our message of youth financial literacy to parent groups, educational leaders, local school boards, civic organizations and state leaders.
