Jumpstart

Jumpstart 1Description:
Jumpstart is a national early education organization that recruits and trains college students and community Corps members to serve preschool children in low-income neighborhoods. Our proven curriculum helps children develop the language and literacy skills they need to be ready for kindergarten, setting them on a path to close the achievement gap before it is too late.

Through this relationship, Jumpstart inspires children to learn, adults to teach, families to get involved and communities to progress together. Jumpstart is working toward the day every child in America enters kindergarten prepared to succeed.

Jumpstart 3

Undergraduate students receive 60 hours of training, and are encouraged to take a companion child development course. Children in the program will be prepared to succeed when they enter kindergarten with foundational knowledge of literacy and social skills built through concentrated and in-depth attention from teams of college students.
