The Evidence is Clear: Jumpstart Works!

The children we serve outperform comparison children, gaining greater language and literacy skills over the program year. For more than two decades, we’ve continuously measured and improved our impact on children’s kindergarten readiness, our Corps members, and the field of early education. Our innovative techniques, partnerships, evaluation models, and vast national network of resources and team members across the country all contribute to this success.
