Maine CUs’ Financial Literacy Blog:
Maine Credit Unions maintain a financial literacy blog, with over 100 articles readily available on a number of fiscal topics. Whether you’re looking for information about budgeting, credit, learning how to live on your own, and more, this blog provides relevant and reliable research-based education.
The mission of the Maine Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy is to improve the financial knowledge of Maine citizens, with a special focus on pre-K through college students, including adult learners. Working collaboratively, the Coalition seeks to increase awareness and provide training and support to Maine educators while also promoting educational resources and fostering communication among agencies and individuals who provide financial education to Maine families.
Additionally, Jump$tart developed a Reality Check. This online resource is a quick and easy tool that helps you understand what it’s really going to take to live independently as an adult consumer.
