The 2014 Jump$tart Coalition National Educator Conference is the only national conference for classroom teachers dedicated to personal education in the classroom. Each year, the conference provides PreK-12 educators with financial education resources, personal and professional development , access to nation-wide network of colleagues, and general support for financial education.
Keith H. Burgess, Project Leader of The H.I.P. H.O.P. Movement Community Enrichment And Economic Development Program said, "We are grateful for the opportunity of being selected to participate with other great financial educators throughout the country at the conference. We produced an innovative and creative program called "$martbuck$ Dollars & Sense", which gave participants from as young as 5 all the way up to 22, the opportunity to be expose to the importance of being financially enabled, equipped and empowered in all facets of finance, which we believe would be critical for them to understanding within an ever changing economy. Thank you so much, VISA & Jump$tart and for our community who voted for us and seeing the value in our program. Our goal is to make a difference in the lives of the people we serve."
The conference will be held from November 8-10 at the Omni Hotel in Los Angeles, California. Financial Literacy educators from all over the country who attend will receive a certificate for 15 Professional Development Hours, along with teacher certification testing and free individual financial planning sessions. The Jump$tart National Educator Conference is proudly sponsored by The Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy, Experian and Wells Fargo.
