Support Financial Literacy in High Schools

Get Involved with Local and State Efforts

Investigate what is happening locally to become familiar with financial literacy initiatives in your community or state. Each state has unique programs with a variety of ways for you to be involved with existing financial literacy efforts.

Take Action

  • Teach or co-teach a personal finance class or workshop using the HSFPP materials. 
  • Contact your state's HSFPP representatives to find out how you can support state HSFPP training events
  • Go to the national Jump$tart Coalition website to find information about personal finance events for teachers in your state.
  • Look at your state's Board of Education website to become familiar with any state financial literacy mandates or initiatives. 
  • Talk to your board of education and other school system decision makers about the value of including financial education in the K-12 curriculum.
