Jumpstart's Financial Smarts for Students

Financial Literacy Month is a nationwide collaborative endeavor marked by a variety of activities and events across the country and throughout the month.  In most years, it’s when our community celebrates achievements in improving the financial literacy of all Americans – especially our nation’s youth. How did it start? Financial Literacy Month was started as Youth Financial Literacy Day by the National Endowment for Financial Education. NEFE brought it to Jump$tart to promote among its 100+ Partners as Youth Financial Literacy Month and, later,  Financial Literacy Month. Today, organizations across the country conduct events and initiatives throughout the month of April. #FinancialLiteracyMonth
