Make an impact! Serve pre-school children in classrooms in under-resourced communities

Jumpstart is a national non-profit that works to connect college students, both undergraduate and graduate, with low-income preschools to provide supplemental language and social skill development. Additionally, we facilitate service projects that engage the outside community and connect a larger audience to our mission.
This is an opportunity to serve as a Jumpstart Corps member, implementing 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.
Our Corps members allow us to reduce the student-to-teacher ratio to 3:1 in almost every Jumpstart classroom, enabling children to receive an individualized learning experience and develop nurturing relationships with caring adults. Through the Jumpstart program, we help ensure kindergarten readiness for over 11,300 children each year and provide our Corps members with the essential training, skills, and practical experience to be better prepared for the workforce, especially if they plan to pursue a career in education or related fields.
