When & Where
Jumpstart's Boston Young Professionals Board
Jumpstart is a national early education organization working toward the day every child in America enters school prepared to succeed. Jumpstart delivers a research-based and cost-effective program by training college students and community volunteers to work with pre-school aged children in low-income neighborhoods. Through a proven curriculum, these children develop the language and literacy skills they need to be ready for school, setting them on a path for lifelong success. This year, in Massachusetts alone, close to 800 Jumpstart Corps members will give over 200,000 hours of service to 1,800 children, building the vital language and literacy skills children need to thrive academically.
