Three times a year the Council for Economic Education releases the CEE Report, highlighting our new and noteworthy events, programs and partnerships, including pilot programs and joint ventures with key supporters.

“Too often, young people fall into financial trouble because they don’t take the time to understand basic economics or the ramifications of a financial agreement. Credit cards, car loans and home mortgages are great tools when used wisely, but the recent housing crisis is an example of what can go wrong when consumers make uninformed decisions. By supporting early and ongoing economic and financial literacy, we can help our young people secure a sound financial future.”

- Mel Martinez, Chairman of the Southeast & Latin America, JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Chairman, JPMorgan Chase Foundation, at the 2012 Visionary Awards
