Program Description and Requirements
Jumpstart provides language, literacy, and social-emotional programming for preschool children from under-resourced communities and promotes quality early learning for all. Corps members serve on a team with 5-7 peers and work directly with a local Jumpstart staff member on training, session planning, service opportunities, and more. The Members allow us to reduce the student-to-teacher ratio to 3:1 in almost every Jumpstart classroom, enabling children to receive an individualized learning experience and develop nurturing relationships with caring adults.
Members must be at least 18 years of age by the start of service.
Members must be U.S. Citizens, U.S. nationals, or lawful permanent residents.
Members must have achieved a high school diploma or GED by the start of service.
Members must not have previously served for AmeriCorps State or National terms.
