Dear Governor Baker:

As alumni of Jumpstartā€™s program throughout Massachusetts, we write to request that you approve the $150,000 appropriation for Jumpstart in line 3000-1000 of the Fiscal Year 2020 budget.

Jumpstart changes lives. As members, we changed the lives of the preschool children we engaged by instilling an excitement and joy of learning at a crucial point in their development, setting them on a path to success in school and beyond. Yet just as importantly, the children changed our lives. They taught us the power of perseverance, compassion, and how to be better educators. We were able to obtain valuable classroom teaching experience, develop a deeper understanding of education inequality, and be introduced to the field of early education. By supporting funding for Jumpstart, you can ensure that even more lives will be changed in Massachusetts.

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