Jumpstart

jumpstartJumpstart is a national early education organization that provides language, literacy, and social-emotional programming for preschool children from under-resourced communities. We’re fueled by the core belief that providing high-quality educational opportunities to all young children contributes to breaking the cycle of poverty.

Jumpstart at the University of Rhode Island accepts students from all majors in our year-long commitment to serving in preschool classrooms across Rhode Island. We also offer the opportunity for work study, an AmericCorps Segal Education Award, and a possible 6 credits for accompanying coursework.

To learn more, please visit jstart.org or contact us directly at jumpstarturi@gmail.com for more information.
