Employing more than 20 BHCC students a year, the Office partnered with Jumpstart in 2012 to provide BHCC students with an opportunity for sustained engagement. Geared towards Early Childhood Education and Education majors, but open to all who want to directly work with small children in their reading development, Jumpstart is a great program!
Jumpstart recruits and trains college students to deliver a language- and literacy-rich curriculum to low-income preschoolers for a full academic school year. Corps members commit to 200 or 300 hours of service, where they’ll serve children directly, receive high-quality trainings, and work closely with a team of peers. Jumpstart is a great way to build up your resume! Jumpstart Corps members develop professional skills including team collaboration, time management, and leadership.
