Committed to Improving the Financial Literacy of NH’s Youth

Jumpstart2021

2021 Goals:

Our specific goals in the post-pandemic environment, as we enter our second decade of service, will be to continue our popular programs and activities: FinLit300, a high school tournament focusing on financial literacy; the I Can Save! Tour of second grade classroom presentations, emphasizing the difference between needs vs. wants; our annual teacher training workshop known as Classroom Connections; and our annual charity golf tournament. Additionally, we are refocusing our outreach and advocacy efforts with the increased use of social media and other promotional opportunities.
