Excellent training opportunity for those interested in becoming educators or working with children
Jumpstart Corps Member (Former Employee) – Malibu, CA – May 3, 2017
In a typical workday, my team would carpool from Pepperdine to Los Angeles where we assisted teachers at a local preschool for low-income families. Once we arrived, we each led a group of around five or six students reading to them and teaching them new vocabulary words. Afterwards, we gathered everyone to perform songs and dances and transitioned into center time. Over the course of one school year, I taught my group of students their shapes, primary and secondary colors, and how to spell and write their name.
Large time commitment
