Reading has always been important to me. I have had the great fortune of being surrounded by caring adults who have invested their time and energy into my education. Today, reading is my favorite escape, relaxation and joy. Unfortunately, not every child grows up the same way. Enter Jumpstart and its organizational mission of working toward the day every child enters kindergarten prepared to succeed.
Jumpstart is national a nonprofit we can all get behind! Jumpstart supports pre-school age children, in low-income neighborhoods, enter school with the tools they need to learn and succeed. Using a proven curriculum, Jumpstart volunteers and corps members enter the classroom to teach young students reading and writing skills and the self-confidence they need to enter elementary school prepared to succeed. The Young Professional Board is a group committed to supporting Jumpstart through awareness campaigns, fund raising and events.
In 2014, I joined the Jumpstart Boston Young Professionals Board, I love this organization, I believe in the incredible work they do serving the mission and I am so proud to support! As part of my commitment to the Young Professionals Board of Boston, I am raising money for this awesome organization. I am not running a race or walking 1000 miles, but I do spend 100+ hours a year investing my time and energy supporting this organization!
By donating to me through this website, you will support Jumpstart and make a difference in a young child's life and help me meet my fundraising goal as a Jumpstart Boston Young Professional’s Board member.
