The Jumpstart Program is a four-week program that is broken down into two sections. The first two weeks are allotted for pre-planned instruction developed by our Education Team; after completion, the remaining two weeks will be dedicated to obtaining certifications and planning obtainable education goals through a set schedule of activities and presentations. The program aims to accumulate or reaccumulate customers who have been participating in a 2-generation activity and not participating in a program back into an educational setting. And to address concerns that customers may have with being in a classroom setting and taking necessary steps to reach their academic goals.
