Operation Jump Start
The mission of Operation Jump Start (OJS) is to help low-resourced, high-potential first generation 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.
Since 1994, OJS has provided the comprehensive resources and mentoring needed to enable youth in underserved communities to reach their full potential through a college education. Our organization has an established and successful track record of success in providing access to higher education for low-income students of color – a demographic group significantly underrepresented on four-year college campuses locally, throughout California, and across the nation.
