Jumpstart believes in and advocates for the following:
- Accessible, high-quality early education
- A professional, stable, and well-compensated early education workforce
- Affordable higher education that incorporates valuable workforce training opportunities
- A commitment to national service
We know we can’t accomplish these lofty goals on our own. In addition, to support from our alums and network of leaders and champions, we benefit from our partnerships with Voices for National Service, America Forward, Common Start Coalition, Black Californians United for Early Care & Education, California’s Early Care and Education (ECE) Coalition, Empire State Campaign for Child Care, City’s First Readers Coalition, and more, to advance a public policy agenda that champions innovative and effective solutions to our country’s most pressing social problems.
