About Us

Jumpstart is a national early education organization that recruits and trains college students and community volunteers to work with preschool children in low-income neighborhoods. Through a proven curriculum, these children develop the language and literacy skills they need to be ready for school, setting them on a path to close the achievement gap before it is too late. Jumpstart is working toward the day every child enters kindergarten prepared to succeed.

  • There are nearly 1.1 million school-aged children in the Greater Los Angeles Area, but nearly half never graduate from high school.
  • Children from a low-income background enter kindergarten significantly behind their peers, and testing shows that children who start behind will likely never catch up.
  • By working with preschool children, Jumpstart is working to change that. By supporting us, you are too.

Join us to work toward the day every child in America enters kindergarten prepared to succeed.
