Who We Are (New)



Happy Birthday, OJS!

As we enter our 25th year of existence, I want to thank each and everyone in our circle of donors, mentors, volunteers, and scholars. This milestone celebration wouldn’t be possible without your generosity and commitment to improving the lives of marginalized youth.

It is your contribution, one of 130 donors throughout 2018, that’s afforded Long Beach scholars the opportunity to experience life-changing milestones of their own. You - our valued partners - funded a student’s first plane ride or visit a dream college campus. You funded something as simple as a “fancy” restaurant meal, or as transformative, as a student's first time away from home overnight, surfing in the ocean, or visiting and advocating for educational reform at our state’s capitol.

Your contribution is an essential part of the Operation Jump Start mission that proudly turns 25 years old in 2019.

We need you to make the next 25 even more impactful! Will you join us on this mission to transform 1000's of scholars lives through education?

Counting on you,
-Irene Quevedo, ED
