One out of five Americans lives beyond his or her means. Half of Americans do not maintain a budget. Many spend more time planning for vacation than retirement.

Luckily, you can do something about it: Studies show that habits form early in life, and that's particularly true when it comes to financial education.

Join us for the Arkansas JumpStart Coalition Conference for kindergarten to college educators. In breakout sessions, speakers from the Little Rock Branch of the St. Louis Fed and partner organizations will share resources and ideas that will help students—and teachers—with their finances.

Participants will receive:

  • six hours of professional development;
  • resources for the classroom and their personal finances;
  • lunch; and
  • networking opportunities.

The event is free, but space is limited.  Sign up soon to save your spot.
