Jumpstart for Young Children


Jumpstart recruits and trains achievement-oriented college students to deliver an innovative early education program via yearlong one-to-one relationships. Jumpstart college student Corps members are paired with preschool children from low-income backgrounds in the classroom setting and work together on language, literacy, social, and initiative skills for one year. Jumpstart is working toward the day every child in America enters school prepared to succeed. Jumpstart is located in 19 states and Washington, D.C., and serves 64 communities in partnership with colleges and universities. During the 2006-2007 school year, 3,100 Corps members will serve nearly 12,000 preschool children at 225 Head Start and other early learning centers across the country. This represents more than 20% annual growth in children served; such growth means Jumpstart Corps members now serve to increase the number of adults working with low-income 4-year olds by more than 5% across the entire country.
