Welcome to Jumpstart
Part of a leading national nonprofit organization, Jumpstart at the University of Washington connects UW undergraduates with low-income Seattle preschoolers to help these children build the language, literacy and social skills necessary for later academic and life success.
Make an impact on a child's life, experience the benefits of community service, and become part of the UW Jumpstart family! Potential to earn academic credit and up to $13/hour!
Jumpstart students celebrate the Chinese New year with children, families, and staff at one of Jumpstart's partner preschools!
“What began as a volunteering opportunity turned into a series of unexpected results. With the help of Jumpstart, I discovered my true passion to become a teacher."
