HawaiiJump$tart Coalition

TheHawaii Jump$tart Coalitionis a nonprofit organization with more than 20 organizations and individuals representing business, government and education throughout the state of Hawaii. We have joined together to improve the personal financial literacy of Hawaii youth from birth through college-age and build a culture of financial literacy in Hawaii by:
  • Developing healthy financial lives from a young age.
  • Empowering youth with financial knowledge and literacy.
  • Promoting ethical financial practices.
  • Partnering with organizations and individuals with similar values to achieve greater collective impact.
In addition, the Hawaii Jump$tart Coalition is a proud affiliate of the National Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy®.


Local Financial Education Resources Clearinghouse
The Hawaii Jump$tart Coalition maintains a local financial education resources clearinghouse with low- and no-cost materials available for public and private school teachers and the general public. A link to the more extensive National Jump$tart Coalition clearinghouse also is provided for additional financial education resources.

Request a Financial Trainer or Presentation
Hawaii Jump$tart Coalition member organizations are available to deliver financial education workshops and presentations upon request. Hawaii residents, businesses, institutions and organizations can request a financial trainer or presentation for their event at low- and no-cost rates.

Hawaii Jump$tart Coalition member organizations offer trainings to certify teachers and community members to deliver age-appropriate youth financial education workshops and integrate financial concepts into classroom learning using curriculum based on national standards for personal financial literacy. Teacher trainings are available annually and on all islands throughout Hawaii.


We need organizations, institutions and individuals to become involved with the coalition.

The Hawaii Jump$tart Coalition worked with the Hawaii State Department of Education between August and December 2015 to develop a strategy for increasing access to financial education resources in the classroom. The strategy highlights the need for:
  • Giving public school teachers access to local and national financial education resources,
  • Increasing collaboration between the Hawaii Jump$tart Coalition and the Hawaii State Department of Education to integrate financial education into existing Common Core curriculum standards, and
  • Creating a Community Engagement position within the Department of Education to streamline partnerships between individual schools, complex areas and financial education professionals.
