Help us make a difference for Long Beach youth
by taking them from “good to GREAT”
Operation Jump Start is a 501(c)(3) 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. We focus on serving first-generation college entrants and assist students beginning as early as 8th grade and continuing through high school graduation and beyond.
Our mission: Operation Jump Start helps low-resourced, high potential students get in, stay in and graduate from a four-year college. We do this by providing academic support, mentoring, and exposure to a broader world.
