Financial Literacy Reading Days

The Jump$tart Washington Coalition — a non-profit coalition dedicated to financial education for K-12 children — is sponsoring Financial Literacy Reading Days in Washington classrooms during Washington Money Smart Week.

This program provides a venue for community leaders to step out of their offices and into one of their city’s elementary schools to read a financial education story to Washington youth.
