Jumpstart is a program that works in conjunction with early childhood centers. Jumpstart pairs young children with adult volunteers (called Jumpstart Corps members) who work with children during two sessions per week. Corps members and children read books, talk, sing songs, play and explore new ideas together in classrooms under the supervision of the teachers.
