We’re fueled by a core belief: providing equal education opportunities to young children contributes to breaking the cycle of poverty.
Jumpstart is a national early education organization working toward the day every child in America enters kindergarten prepared to succeed. We provide language, literacy, and social-emotional programming for preschool children from under-resourced communities and promote quality early learning for all children. Since 1993, we’ve trained 45,000 college students and community volunteers to transform the lives of nearly 100,000 preschool children nationwide.
Our preschoolers are not the only ones who love a good story! Learn more about the incredible volunteers, children, families, and supporters who help bring the Jumpstart program alive across the country.
