Operation Jump Start, a nonprofit organization serving students in the Long Beach Unified School District, is looking for 8th – 11th graders to help them achieve their college dreams!
BTW, this is an absolutely FREE program for qualifying students!
“As an immigrant and first-generation student, my family did not know how to even begin applying to college, but OJS was there to provide me with the mentoring and resources I needed to get into a four-year university. But what makes OJS great is that not only do you get academic support but you also gain fun life experiences. Yes, I had SAT prep classes but I also went horseback riding and kayaking for the first time with OJS. I am proud to be an alumna of OJS and now a college graduate from Northwestern University.”
