Jumpstart Highlighted by CNCS for Favorable Outcomes

December 18, 2018 (WASHINGTON, DC) — In the most recently published Corporation for National & Community Service (CNCS) evidence brief of effective CNCS-funded education programs, we are proud to announce that Jumpstart was one of only 13 organizations to be cited for effective interventions, and one of two in the category of school readiness. CNCS oversees AmeriCorps and Senior Corps programs. The brief, published in November, featured education-focused programs supported by CNCS that produced favorable and measured outcomes in areas including kindergarten readiness, improved socioemotional skills, and emergent literacy skills.

“On a scale of 1 to 5, Jumpstart children averaged gains of 1.47 points on assessments that measure oral language and early literacy skills (compared to 1.1 points by their peers, an increase of 29 percent).”

Together, we can help all children build the key language and literacy skills they need to take on the world.
