BENEFITING: Jumpstart for Young Children, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Oct 27, 2016
Once again this fall, the YPB is raising funds in conjunction with Read for the Record. Proceeds benefit Jumpstart children in NY, NJ, PA, CT.
Jumpstart is a national early education organization that recruits and trains college students to serve preschool children in low-income neighborhoods. Jumpstart’s Read for the Record® is a world-wide campaign that addresses the educational inequities that leave too many children unprepared for kindergarten. On 10/27, millions of children and adults will gather to learn, laugh, and read this year's campaign book, The Bear Ate Your Sandwich by Julia Sarcone-Roach, as part of the world’s largest shared reading experience.
The Jumpstart Tri-State Young Professionals Board (YPB) is a forum for young professionals from all sectors to network with one another while utilizing their skills, connections and ideas to work towards a worthy cause. Members work directly with Jumpstart to advance the organizational mission by creating local opportunities for fundraising and strengthening organizational visibility.
