Jumpstart Community Corps
|Jumpstart Community Corps is an innovative program designed to train volunteers to work with preschool children in low-income neighborhoods. Our volunteers enjoy working with young children and have a desire to give back to their community.
Jumpstart Community Corps is currently recruiting for the 2012-2013 School year! We are looking for older adult volunteers to work in preschools in the Boulevard/Auburn Ave., Campbellton Rd., and English Ave. neighborhoods. In the Corps Member position, volunteers will have the opportunity to serve children ages 3-5, and help them build language, literacy, and social skills. Corps members volunteer a minimum of six hours per week. Service includes sessions at the preschool site, session preparation, and pre-service and in-service training.
