Jumpstart, a leading national early education organization, helps break the cycle of poverty, giving children the “jumpstart" they need in life. 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 underserved communities and promote quality early learning for all. Jumpstart's unique approach - training college students and community volunteers on a developmentally appropriate, evidence-based curriculum to engage preschool children in language, literacy, and social-emotional skill development over an academic year – gives children from underserved communities the skills they need for success in kindergarten and beyond.
