Working together we can improve the financial literacy of Nevada's youth

 

The Nevada Jump$tart Coalition

is a statewide, all volunteer, 501(c)(3) non-profit association dedicated to improving the personal financial literacy of children living in Nevada. The Nevada Jump$tart Coalition consists of individuals and organizations representing business, government and education who have joined together to improve the personal financial literacy of Nevada's youth.

Our Mission: The Nevada Jump$tart Coalition for personal financial literacy seeks to improve the personal financial literacy of young adults. Jump$tart's purpose is to evaluate the financial literacy of young adults; develop, disseminate, and encourage the use of standards for grades K-12; and promote the teaching of personal finance. The Jump$tart Coalition believes that all young adults need to have the financial literacy necessary to make informed financial decisions.
