Are you getting ready for 2006-07??...Jumpstart is currently recruiting achievement-oriented students (from all majors) to join Jumpstart in its 4th year out of the UA-College of Education.

Jumpstart is an AmeriCorps program that hires and trains undergraduate college students to mentor 3- to 5-year-old children at-risk in the Akron community, by helping develop and support their language and literacy skills in preparation for kindergarten. You can also earn your federal work-study award through Jumpstart and earn an additional education award upon completion of a term of service in AmeriCorps.

Jumpstart is a full-year commitment (fall and spring term), and you must be available both semesters either from
  • 3 to 6 p.m. on Tuesdays or Thursdays; or
  • 3 to 6 p.m. on Wednesdays and Fridays.
Students complete about 11 hours per week during both semesters, partnered with a child and also assigned to a classroom of children, in order to complete a 300-hour term of service.

To apply, complete an online application at jstart.org to become a Corps member. When you submit, your application is received via e-mail by Jumpstart staff, who will contact you to schedule an interview. Position descriptions can also be viewed at this link.

For further questions or info, please contact Jumpstart site staff at 330-972-7936 or jumpstart@uakron.edu

We look forward to hearing from you!
