AmeriCorps Opportunity: Support Early Literacy Development

JUMPSTART IS NOW HIRING!

Jumpstart is an AmeriCorps program that recruits caring adults to work with 3-5 year old children. Read books, sing songs, and do activities that support young children’s language and literacy development. For those eligible, some college students can potentially earn an AmeriCorps education award in the process. Jumpstart Corps members work 8-12 hours a week in local early childhood centers (for a total of 300 hours in a year), partnered with a small group of children. Gain valuable skills and experience and make a difference in the life of a child!

Corps member training will begin September 29, so apply as soon as possible if interested.

Corps members must be available either Monday & Wednesday afternoons from 1-4 OR Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9-noon.
