Jumpstart Northridge
December 10, 2008

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.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

children and parents. The children begin to show improvement within the first month of Jumpstart. The parents learn more on how they can help their child become prepared for higher education.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make the classes and trainings more interactive.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the interaction with the children.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very helpful in preparing the workers for their job.=

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

reach children across the U.S. and provide more rescources for the program.

Ways to make it better...

the Americorps and Work-study time-sheets were more correlated.

Should this review be counted for a specific campaign?
