Jumpstart for Young Children Atlanta
Jumpstart works toward the day every child in America enters school prepared to succeed. To this end, we recruit, train, place, and support achievement-oriented college students and community members to serve as part-time Corps members. Jumpstart Corps members work individually with preschool aged children to build the skills crucial to school success. Jumpstart focuses on three program areas: building School Success for young children by building their early communication, literacy, and social skills; encouraging strong Family Involvement to help families support child's learning at home; and train college students to be Future Teachers and leaders in early childhood education.
