Jumpstart is a national early education organization that recruits and trains college students 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. Corps members are paid for their time and effort, and receive many other benefits as well.
So, how can you get involved? In a million different ways! We have openings in just about every area of Jumpstart—it’s just a matter of finding the right fit.
