The next National Educator Conference is Nov. 4-6, 2022 in Atlanta. This is the only national conference dedicated to personal finance education in the classroom and the professionals who teach it. The conference is designed for K-12 classroom educators who teach personal finance or incorporate it into any other subject. As a coalition of more than 100 diverse national partner organizations, Jump$tart brings together the resources, support, and expertise needed to engage, inspire, and appreciate classroom educators from across the country, who attend the conference on fully funded scholarships. This conference offers classroom educators an opportunity to see, learn about, and try financial education resources to integrate immediately into current lesson plans, to meet with leaders from finance and education, and to network with colleagues from across the country.
