Jumpstart is a program that places college students in
low-income preschools near St. John's to implement a language and
literacy curriculum with the children. Join us for the 9th
programming year at St. John's to read stories, sing songs and play
games that support young children's school readiness in a local
early childhood center.
We are looking for students of all majors who can commit
10-12 hours a week and must be available to participate starting
fall 2012 in one of the two timeslots:
(1) Monday and Thursday from 2-5pm
(2) Tuesday and Friday from 9am-12pm
The remaining hours will be flexible based on your schedule.
Students who receive federal work study funds are eligible to earn
an hourly wage of $10.
Upon completion of the required 300 hours of service during the
2012-2013 academic year, you will be eligible for an Americorps
award of $1,175.
