Recruitment Challenge

Operation Jump Start is a Long Beach community based organization dedicated to equipping Long Beach youth in underserved communities with the skills and vision necessary to graduate from high school and realize their potential through a college education. This is achieved by providing each child with a dedicated volunteer mentor who promotes academic persistence and encourages post-secondary education. We assist disadvantaged students beginning in 7th grade and continuing through high school graduation

What We Do Works!

Despite dismal high school graduation rates in the greater Long Beach area, Operation Jump Start graduates defy the odds:

  • 100% graduate from high school
  • 98% attend college immediately after high school
  • 94% attend a four-year college or university

We increase self-confidence, cultural sensitivity and a sense of participation in the community by providing over 360 hours of dedicated individualized services to each vulnerable child through crucial programming and long-term support from a mentor. Our programs include:

  • Educational Workshops
  • College Tours
  • Cultural Activities
  • Newsletter Program
  • Computer Donation Program
  • Individual Case Management
  • Scholarship Program
  • Leadership Development
  • Social Work Services
  • On-going Mentor Training
  • Social/Physical Events
  • Tutoring Program in our on-site Learning and Resource Center
