Extension Honored with NH Jump$tart Volunteer Service Award
April 18, 2007
The NH Jump$tart Coalition Board of Directors will present this year’s Volunteer Service Award to UNH Cooperative Extension on May 9 at the coalition's MoneySmarts teacher conference in Concord.
The board selects an individual or organization that has demonstrated its willingness, passion and assistance in helping improve the personal financial literacy of young people in the Granite State.
Cooperative Extension, through the generosity and effort of many of its employees, has been a major supporter and partner in the coalition's efforts since 2000. As a result of the collaboration in the promotion and distribution of the High School Financial Planning Program, more than 30,000 students have been introduced to personal finance concepts since 2002.
