Jumpstart

Jumpstart is a national early education organization that recruits and trains college students and community volunteers to work with preschool children in low-income neighborhoods. Join us to work toward the day every child in America enters kindergarten prepared to succeed. Learn more at www.jstart.org.

 

Jumpstart Corps members have the unique opportunity to inspire young children to learn, serve in a local community, collaborate with others on a team, and build professional skills. All Corps members receive high quality training to help them implement Jumpstart’s outcome-based program, promote children’s school success, and build family involvement.

 

Corps members complete an intensive commitment and make a substantial impact in the life of young children. During the school year, Corps members serve 300 hours, 12-14 hours per week.
