BENEFITING: Jumpstart for Young Children, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2014
Jumpstart in the Tri-State Area - New York, New Jersey, Connecticut
Jumpstart is a national early childhood education organization working to ensure that every child in America enters kindergarten prepared to succeed. We accomplish this goal by recruiting and training college students – known as Corps members – to work with preschool children from low-income families for a year. The Corps members support the children’s development of important language, literacy, social, and initiative skills. This school year, 816 college students from fifteen university partners will work with over 2,000 preschool children in New York City, New Jersey, and Connecticut.
