Having had the opportunity to participate in two different Illinois Jump$tart initiatives, I have been impressed with the Coalition’s commitment to improving youth financial literacy, as well as the creativity with which Illinois Jump$tart pursues this objective. My colleagues and I have been working for years to help students and adults develop the skills they need to avoid costly financial mistakes. It is great to know we have an ally like Illinois Jump$tart, and I look forward to future collaboration.

The holiday reception was very well run, with great networking, and an outstanding honoree!
