The JUMP Foundation is an experiential education provider that was established in 2006 in response to what its founding members saw was a need in youth education for programs that better addressed issues of leadership and global citizenship. Today JUMP has a strong network of facilitators, partners and advisors across the globe; it has delivered programs to 1800 youths in four continents utilizing the outdoors, cityscapes and various other environments to challenge and engage its participants. JUMP School programs have run in schools in Europe, North America and Asia; JUMP Experience programs have been initiated in Egypt, China and Canada. Its activities provoke reflection, dialogue and everyday application by encouraging individual resilience and broadened horizons.
JUMP strongly believes in distributing the knowledge resources and opportunities it offers in an equitable and sustainable manner. Driven by this mission, JUMP has initiated the design, development and implementation of youth-focused development projects for marginalized young people in the Dominican Republic & Haiti, China, Tanzania and Mongolia.
