The mission of the Maine Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy is to improve the financial knowledge of Maine citizens, with a special focus on Pre-K through college-aged students, including adult learners. Working collaboratively, the Coalition seeks to increase awareness and provide training and support to Maine educators while also promoting educational resources and fostering communication among agencies and individuals who provide financial education to Maine families.
Our members are individuals and organizations who recognize and support the lifetime benefits of personal financial education, including government agencies, financial institutions, corporations, teachers, guidance counselors, school administrators, adult educators, non-profits, parents and students.
We are a non-profit organization affiliated with the National Jump$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.
