The seminar provides training for activities that students will lead in their preschool classrooms, and background on issues related to young children's cognitive, language and social development. Jumpstart Corps members have the unique opportunity to inspire young children to learn, serve in a local community, work on a team, and build professional skills. All Corps members receive professional-caliber training to help them implement Jumpstart's outcome-based program, promote children's school success, and build family involvement.
