When & Where
Imagine starting a race after everyone else had already reached the halfway mark. Not exactly fair, is it? But for many children, this isn't too far from reality. That's because in low-income neighborhoods, children start kindergarten one year behind their peers from affluent communities, leaving them woefully unprepared.
With a vision to work toward the day every child in America enters kindergarten prepared to succeed, Jumpstart provides language, literacy, and social-emotional programming for preschool children from underserved communities, and promotes quality early learning for all. In pursuit of its mission, Jumpstart recruits and trains college volunteers to implement a researched-based curriculum designed to support children in developing key skills deemed by early education experts to be most vital for school readiness.
