Beginning in grade six, future educators participate in a variety of assisting activities with teacher mentors in their classrooms.

FEA Four Year Program Plan


Children first at Montclair State University

Working toward the day every child in America enters kindergarten prepared to succeed. 

Jumpstart is an AmeriCorps program that recruits caring college students to work with 3-5 year old children: read books, sing songs, and do activities that support young children’s language and literacy development. For those eligible, students can potentially earn a Work-Study wage, and an AmeriCorps education award in the process! 

Jumpstart Corps members work 8-12 hours a week in local early childhood centers, partnered with a small group of children. Gain valuable skills and experience, earn Federal Work-Study money, and make a difference in the life of a child!

In its inaugural year, Jumpstart at MSU was able to impact over 100 children in Newark, and influence the lives of over 40 college students! 

Don’t miss your opportunity to join this amazing program in the 2013-2014 academic year!
