Jumpstart is working toward the day every child in America enters kindergarten prepared to succeed. The organization's mission is to provide language, literacy, and social-emotional programming for preschool children from under-resourced communities and promote quality early learning for all. Jumpstart is fueled by a core belief: providing transformative educational opportunities to young children contributes to breaking the cycle of poverty. The organization pairs caring adults, called Corps members, with preschool children from low-income neighborhoods. They work together, for an entire school year, on developing critical early learning skills children need to succeed in school and beyond.
