Jumpstart’s mission is to work toward the day every child in America enters school prepared to succeed. To achieve this mission, Jumpstart NYU trains and supports NYU students to serve as part-time Corps members, working with young children to build skills crucial to school success. Jumpstart focuses on three program areas: building School Success for young children by fostering their early language, literacy, social, and initiative skills; encouraging strong Family Involvement to help families support children’s learning; and training college students to be Future Teachers and leaders in early childhood education.

During the 2012-2013 school year, 85 Jumpstart NYU Corps members will serve over 240 young children in child care centers on the Lower East Side.
