In 1995 the Idaho Financial Literacy Coalition formed to provide training on personal finance topics to public and private school teachers in consumer economics, family & consumer sciences, business, social studies, math, and professional technical education. In 1996 the Coalition expanded its efforts to include adult audiences.
Since 2001, we have also been Idaho’s affiliate of the Jump$tart Coalition for Financial Literacy.
Why Idaho Financial Literacy Coalition?
Unfortunately, many Idahoans are not prepared to make wise financial decisions related to checking and savings accounts, auto insurance, credit and investments as evidenced by the high levels of loan delinquency, increasing numbers of fraud victims, and appeals for help to various agencies.
