Jumpstart at GW


Jumpstart is a national AmeriCorps program that trains and places college students in teams to serve preschools in low-income neighborhoods for an academic year. Our mission is to work toward the day every child in America enters school prepared to succeed.

GW Corps members attend Jumpstart sessions twice per week, implementing session plans that focus on language and literacy development, as well as social skills. Through individualized attention, Corps members work to prepare their preschool partner children for Kindergarten and beyond, utilizing principles of intrinsic motivation and learning through play. 

During the COVID pandemic, Jumpstart is providing online sessions for preschoolers and their families.
