2020 Personal Financial Literacy Conference

Virtual Financial Literacy Camp

We are excited to announce that Iowa Jump$tart has coordinated with Next Gen Personal Finance to offer a one-day virtual workshop for Iowa teachers on Thursday, August 6.  The focus of this workshop will be on how to deliver great and effective financial literacy content virtually.

We know that many of you will have to teach some or all of your classes virtually this year.  We wanted to help you with that.  We are sure this workshop will help you be as effective as you can be given the circumstances.  Even though we had to cancel our annual conference this summer, we are hoping that this opportunity will be even more relevant to your current situation.

Here is the information to sign up.

Register now!

Participants will be able to: 

  • Understand how to navigate NGPF’s website to find curricular resources + more
  • Focus on remote teaching strategies and tools for virtual personal finance instruction
  • Build deeper content expertise and collaborate with other financial educators

National Jump$tart Educator Conference

Unfortunately, the National Jump$tart Coalition has announced it has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 National Educator Conference, due to COVID-19 related travel and event restrictions and the significant number of participants who have decided not to attend.

The 2020 National Educator Conference was originally planned to be held on November 7-9 in Atlanta. Though Jump$tart will not be converting NEC into a virtual conference, they are working on an opportunity to connect partners and educators, so stay tuned!
