The Jumpstart program is a great experience for any person, in any field of study. Me being a political science major many may not see the importnce of me being a part of Jumpstart. However, while working with Jumpstart I realized that children play a major role in politics. Whether it be education, after school activities, or funds. Jumpstart is an excellent oppurtunity to learn more about children. I hav come to learn a lot about how children work, and I hope you will too.

Jumpstart Northridge, is a great experience for me. I was able take a few hours out of my busy day to help this low income children read. I was able to donate my time and give out free books to the preschool i was assigned too. The staff is very helpful and just wonderful. It made me want to come back and help out in future events. Is a great way to see children smile and it was an inspiration.
