What we do:

Children with limited resources often enter kindergarten 60% behind their peers. Jumpstart tutors at-risk preschoolers by implementing a language and literacy curriculum to ensure all children are prepared to start school ready to achieve success.

Why we’re great:

We're in the business of changing children's lives. As the only intervention program of its kind, Jumpstart outcomes result in significant academic gains for kids, confirming one key fact--Jumpstart works. We are closing the achievement gap.

Why does your organization deserve community financial support?

Among today's children sit our future presidents, scientists, entrepreneurs, and teachers. But not all children begin the race of life on equal footing. Why should a zip code dictate a child's success? At Jumpstart, we make sure it doesn't.
