Every team at each of our partner schools consist of two or more tutors and one School Community Organizer (SCO). Tutors can serve in public schools as scholars in our Public School Scholarship program or as work study students in Catholic Schools. SCOs are typically graduate students assigned to one particular school and community area to identify potential resources and partners for the school. SCOs also provide support to their team of tutors. To find out how to get involved with one of our programs please visit Students Opportunities.
members implement the Jumpstart curriculum in preschool classrooms across the
country and serve as an aid to teachers. Corps members serve on a team with 5-7
peers and work directly with a local Jumpstart staff member on training,
session planning, service opportunities, and more. A typical Jumpstart session follows this routine: Welcome, Reading, Circle Time, Center Time, Let’s Find Out About It, and Sharing and Goodbye.
