Jumpstart Campaign Brings Attention to Early Education Crisis
You are invited to the Hudson Area Library on October 4th from 10-11am to read Ladybug Girl & the Bug Squad, by David Soman and Jacky Davis, along with more than 2 million people as part of Jumpstart’s Read for the Record. Jumpstart’s Read for the Record is an annual reading celebration that highlights the need for quality early education in America by mobilizing adults and children to set a record for the largest shared reading experience.
Since the campaign’s inception in 2006, more than seven million people have joined local Jumpstart’s Read for the Record reading celebrations; Jumpstart has raised more than $7 million to support its year-round work in preschools in low-income neighborhoods.
Jumpstart is a national early education organization working toward the day every child in America enters school prepared to succeed. Jumpstart delivers a research-based and cost-effective program by training college students and community volunteers to serve preschool-age children in low-income neighborhoods. Through a proven curriculum, these children develop the language and literacy skills they need to be ready for school, setting them on a path for lifelong success. Jumpstart is a proud member of the AmeriCorps national service network. Learn more about Jumpstart at www.jstart.org.
