Mission Statement: to encourage middle school students to reach their full academic potential with personalized homework help.
 
Jumpstart is a homework help program geared to assisting middle school students with the aid of high school students as mentors, and loving adult volunteers as facilitators. Jumpstart aims to provide one-on-one time with students so they can gain more instruction in subjects such as math and reading. Each student works and builds a relationship with the same high school student every week.
 
Jumpstart operates every Wednesday during regular Lake County school days. 
 

Weekly Schedule:
3:15 PM - The students are bused from Carver to Morrison.
3:30 PM to 5:00 PM -  Students and tutors eat snack and work on the student’s weekly homework.
5:00 PM to 5:30 PM -  Students and tutors eat dinner during the Wednesday Altogether Meal in the Family Life Center.
5:30 PM to 6:15 PM -  Character building through games with aid from the Boys and Girls Club
6:15 PM -  Pick up in the Multi-Ministry Building
 

Payment 
Jumpstart is a completely free program for the students. The cost is being provided by the loving family of the Morrison United Methodist Church and privately funded grants.

Interested in joining the program as a student or a tutor?  
During the year, spots for both students and tutors sometimes become available.  For more information, contact Emily Givens, Director of Jumpstart, at egivens@morrisonumc.org.
