Every child deserves the chance to succeed, yet studies show that children from low-income neighborhoods are at a greater risk of school failure. Jumpstart is a national early education organization that helps these children develop the language and literacy skills they need for school, setting them on a path to close the achievement gap before it's too late.
Since 1993 Jumpstart has trained nearly 25,000 college students and community volunteers to deliver its program to more than 100,000 preschool children nationwide. Here in the Merrimack Valley, Jumpstart will reach well over 150 children during the 2012-2013 school year.
Jumpstart's award-winning program holds a "Best in America" seal from Independent Charities of America. Join us to work toward the day every child in America enters school prepared to succeed. Learn more on the Jumpstart website.
