North Dakota Jump$tart is a nonprofit organization that encourages and promotes financial literacy efforts throughout the state. They educate the public through speaking engagements and workshops and provide information and materials throughout the state.
The ND Jump$tart Coalition is planning RealWorld Camps for 6th graders next year in Bismarck and Fargo. It will be the first annual event and will be free to the first responding 150 sixth graders in Bismarck-Mandan, Fargo and surrounding communities. The Real World Camp will offer participants a first-hand look at life through 5 hands-on break-out sessions and a stroll through the “Real World” city featuring local businesses that affect our daily lives.
The event in Bismarck is planned for Monday, March 12, 2012 at the Bismarck Public Schools Career Academy on the BSC campus from 8 am – 5 pm. The details for the Fargo event are still being worked on. Registration information will be available within the next couple of months.
This event can only be made possible through the donations of sponsoring companies. Bismarck Public Schools Career Academy is sponsoring the space in Bismarck and other donations would greatly benefit both events to help keep the cost low and possibly free to our attendees. They are also seeking donations of breakfasts, lunches, snacks, speaker fees, and t-shirt sponsors as each group will be identified by their shirt color.
Should your business make a monetary donation, they will recognize your efforts to our event with your logo on our t-shirts and on all marketing and promotional items.
If you are interested in helping out either through item donation or monetary sponsorship of our event, please contact Amy Johnson at email@example.com before Thursday, December 15, 2011.
