This free, one-day Financial Literacy professional development program is open to all New England Pre-K to college educators and pre-service teachers. The program will increase your confidence and understanding of personal finance.

Please save the date and register ASAP- seating is limited to the first 50!
For the 4th year, this program will utilize the National Jump$tart Teacher Training model. The Jump$tart Teacher Training Alliance (J$TTA) is a collaborative endeavor designed to standardize teacher training in personal finance through a shared model called Jump$tart Financial Foundations for Educators, (J$FFE) which will ensure consistency and rigor in teacher training programs across the country.

The training will include: networking breakfast, panel discussions, lunch, pratical classroom application using NextGen Personal Finance materials, and two interactive modules:

“Earning Capacity” is a newly-offered module that explores: how a career trajectory impacts earning power and lifestyle, the value of benefits, planning for retirement, and making adjustments during changing stages of life and career.


“Saving & Investing 2.0” We will include a review of basic terms and then discuss resources and information to better equip participants to reach financial goals.

Teachers who have participated in previous Teacher Trainings are welcome to attend, and will have opportunities to network and explore new applications of personal finance materials.

The training will be a great opportunity for educators to share their ideas on incorporating Jump$tart National Standards in K-12 Personal Finance Education and CEE National Standards for Financial Literacy into classrooms.

Please save the date and register ASAP- seating is limited to the first 50!
Participants will receive a certificate of completion and a letter detailing the training. Questions may be directed to Matt Paradise, MA Jump$tart President.

The October 12th Financial Literacy program is organized by MA Jump$tart, MA Council on Economic Education, and Fidelity Investments.

Many thanks to Fidelity Investments for generously hosting and supporting this valuable program!
