Jumpstart invites children to explore campus and their future

The youngsters came to USC to explore what they want to be when they grow up

No, they’re not making freshmen quite that young. The youngsters you saw on campus Feb. 27 — more than 120 of them — were guests of Jumpstart and EdMonth, invited to explore what they want to be when they grow up. Children rotated between a reading garden and learning stations about engineering, art and science.

Jumpstart’s group of more than 40 core members serve preschool children in low-income neighborhoods near the university, teaching them vital language and literacy skills. EdMonth is a student-led program devoted to raising awareness about the state of education.
