Community engagement is integral to the growth and success of Jubilee JumpStart. As one of our four Operational Pillars, it is as important to us as providing high-quality care for children, dependable support for families, and investment in professional development for teachers.
One way we aim to meet this commitment is by providing opportunities for our supporters to get involved. Because of COVID-19, we’ve had to adapt our volunteer programs so that our community can connect with us while we are doing all that we can to keep our children and each other healthy and safe.
Volunteer during the 2020-21 School Year!
Be a virtual
If you love engaging with children around a good book, find out about our Fall in Love with Books and March into Reading events or inquire about other opportunities to read virtually to your preferred Jubilee JumpStart classroom.
By sharing your talent or interest in a short video that we can add to our digital library for our children learning at home. Do you play an instrument? Do you love to cook or do crafts? Into fitness or yoga? Are you a great storyteller?
Share a short video doing a family friendly activity that children do with you at home with their parents.
Be Our Family Market
Once a month Jubilee JumpStart in partnership with Families4Families’ Students4Families program hosts a Family Market, distributing free groceries to families in need in our community. Donate a couple of hours one Saturday morning to help out at our market.
Once a month we receive free diapers and related goods from the DC Diaper Bank to distribute to our families and community.
We could use transport support from the Diaper Bank to Jubilee JumpStart during our operating hours and help coordinating distribution to our community.
Help Keep Our Center and Playground Safe and Attractive
If you are handy with tools, like to build and repair things or fine gardening and yard work therapeutic, learn about Jubilee JumpStart Community Work Days and volunteer a couple of hours of a weekend to help us spruce up the place.
Offer Administrative or Operational Support
Are you tech-savvy? Do you have experience managing databases? Are you an active engager in social media? Can you create dynamic documents and promotional materials?
