Jumpstart Your Career
- A typical four-year-old from a low-income home is exposed to 13 million words.
- A child from a middle-class family has heard close to 45 million.
- Studies show that over time, this achievement gap only gets worse. We can change this.
That’s why there’s Jumpstart.
We’re working on a big problem. It’s America’s achievement gap—and we’re looking for the best and the brightest to help us solve it.
If you’re ready to change the world one child at a time, then you’ve come to the right place. That’s because we help the children we prepare to fulfill their potential as contributing citizens, leaders and change-makers of tomorrow.
