Jumpstart Will Make You Jump, Jump!

Move over, Kris Kross. This hit made it past the early 90s. One of the nation’s leading nonprofits in the field of early childhood education, Jumpstart not only realizes that every child is born with the potential to succeed, they work to make sure that happens.

Jumpstart joined Pace University in 2007 and has since attracted almost 150 students, bringing college students and community volunteers together with preschool children for individualized tutoring and mentoring.  Students here at Pace can take part in the Jumpstart program by visiting www.jstart.org/apply. Contact LunYan Tom, Site Manager, at ltom@pace.edu with any questions.

Jumpstart at Pace is housed under the Center for Undergraduate Research Experiences (CURE), which also provides service-learning opportunities through the Community and Volunteer Mobilization (CVM) AmeriCorps, the Liberty Partnerships Program, and Upward Bound.

If you’re interested in long-term work with English language and computer literacy, CVM AmeriCorps is currently recruiting Pace students and alumni for nine-month paid internships. Read more about this exciting opportunity here.
