ORGANIZATION: Operation Jump Start


Join us in supporting low-income, first-generation college students! Operation Jump Start exists to help students get in, stay in, and graduate from college.

We'd love to have you as a mentor for our bright and inspiring youth. You will provide guidance, support, and fun outings to a young student. You have the potential to develop a lifelong connection and friendship - and this happened in our program many, many times!

You will be working one-on-one with an 8th-10th grade student. Requirements for this position include:

✔ At least 24 years old (some flexibility on this, so still reach out if you are younger)

✔ Available to spend 6 hours a month MINIMUM with your mentee

✔ Have a college degree (preferably), or currently working on one

✔ Commit to 1-3 years with us

✔ Provide transportation with your own vehicle to your mentee throughout Long Beach

This opportunity completely works around your schedule. As long as you are committed to being there for your student and have a handful of hours to spare each month, this is for you. No rigid schedules!

Reach out directly to our Community Outreach Coordinator at with any questions.

Mission Statement

Operation Jump Start helps low-resourced, high potential, first-generation college students get in, stay in, and graduate from college. We do this by providing academic support, mentoring, and exposure to a broader world.


We believe a college education is one of the surest ways to break the cycle of poverty. By providing long-term services and resources that support the WHOLE student, we are creating an environment where students can triumph over their circumstances, succeed in school, and thrive in their lives. We provide scholarships, mentoring, counseling, academic support, tutoring, fun events and trips, and opportunities for leadership.
