Working together to serve young children

Across the country, Jumpstart partners with colleges and universities to recruit and train our most valuable resource—our Corps members.  Our network of college and university partners enables us to bring caring and service-minded adults into local preschools where their skills and compassion are needed most.  Our Corps members put Jumpstart into action, and our college and university partners support them every step of the way.
