Our Mission


 The New Jersey Council for Economic Education’s purpose is to enhance the knowledge and capabilities of New Jersey students. As an affiliate of CEE, the leading k-12 economic education organization in the United States, NJCEE is uniquely positioned to provide students the tools necessary to successfully navigate the 21st century economy and to reach their full potential as employees, entrepreneurs, investors, and civic-minded individuals. 


 NJCEE carries out its mission by providing the curriculum tools, the pedagogical support, and the community of peers that instruct, inspire, and guide our teachers. Resources and programs are developed by educators throughout our national network, which includes: 200+ University Centers, the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank, and non-profit partner organizations. 


 Your support helps us continue our mission to provide K-12 students with the knowledge and language of money. In turn, we give them the essential tools to create financial stability and opportunity for themselves, their families and their communities. Every gift allows us to expand our reach to classrooms and homes throughout the state, particularly in districts of need. 


 NJCEE strives to empower our students with the skills necessary to transform their lives. Building their learning and career capital will have a lasting benefit on the future of New Jersey.
