JUMPSTART NOW HIRING: Deadline is September 4

Jumpstart is now hiring Corps Members and Team Leaders! Jumpstart is a national early education organization that recruits and trains college students and community volunteers to work with preschool children in low-income neighborhoods. Through a proven curriculum, these children develop the language and literacy skills they need to be ready for school, setting them on a path to close the achievement gap before it is too late. Jumpstart Corps members have the unique opportunity to inspire young children to learn, serve in a local community, work on a team, and build professional skills. All Corps members receive professional-caliber training to help them implement Jumpstart’s outcome-based program, promote children’s school success, and build family involvement. 

Corps members complete an intensive commitment and make a substantial impact in the life of a young child. During the school year, Corps members participate in the following activities: 

Serve part-time, 8-12 hours per week, during the school year, including: 
  • Jumpstart sessions with team and small groups of children, 4 hours per week (two sessions per week for two hours each) 
  • Team planning meetings and session preparation, which includes planning, reflection, and/or training, 2-3 hours per week 
  • 2 hours each week in a preschool classroom during the regular school day 
  • 1 hour of individual planning and preparation for Jumpstart sessions 
  • Communicate with children’s family 
  • Participate in intensive pre-service and on-going trainings 
  • Attend periodic service days, often held on weekends 
Learn more and apply at www.jstart.org. You can also contact Stephanie Travis the Georgia Tech site manager by email at stephanie.travis@jstart.org or by phone 404-385-0314.
