Every child deserves the chance to succeed, yet studies show that children from low-income neighborhoods are at a greater risk of school failure. Jumpstart is a national early education organization that helps these children develop the language and literacy skills they need to be successful in school, setting them on a path to close the achievement gap before it is too late.

Since 1993, Jumpstart has trained more than 20,000 college students and community volunteers to deliver its program to more than 90,000 preschool children nationwide.

Mission: 
Jumpstart recruits and trains college students and community volunteers to deliver a high quality early education curriculum to preschool children in low-income neighborhoods. During their school year together, children develop skills they need to be ready to start school, setting them on a path for lifelong success. We also recognize that parents and families are the first - and most important - teachers of our nation's children, so we've developed resources to bring our Jumpstart expertise to your home.
