Jumpstart is a national early education non-profit organization that recruits and trains college students as Corps members to serve preschool children in low-income neighborhoods. The organization’s proven curriculum helps children develop the language and literacy skills they need to be ready for kindergarten, setting them on a path to close the achievement gap. LIU Brooklyn students who serve as Jumpstart Corps members have the unique opportunity to inspire young children to learn, serve in a local community, work on a team, and build professional skills. All Corps members receive professional-caliber training to help them implement Jumpstart’s outcome-based program, promote children’s school success, and build family involvement. Corps members complete 300 hours of service during the school year, and as an AmeriCorps member, receive an Education Award upon successful completion.
