Spotlight: Central Connecticut State University

Jumpstart Corps Members went above and beyond to reach as many children as possible. At Central Connecticut State University, Corps Members had a hard time connecting with families to provide them with literacy kits at the start of the year, so they developed a creative new plan.

They packed boxes full of literacy kits – each containing a book, an activity guide, and supplies – and began standing outside of a local restaurant they know Jumpstart families frequent. With this creative idea, Corps Members distributed significantly more literacy kits to families in their community!Ā 

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