This year, seven undergraduates are serving as team leaders for Jumpstart at Tufts. Housed by Tisch College, the program engages over 60 students as Corp Members annually. Team leaders prepare a group of Corps Members to provide educational activities to young children and families. Responsibilities include planning and implementing effective Jumpstart sessions, facilitating team meetings, and coaching Corps members to use developmentally appropriate practices with young children. The team leaders play a variety of roles, including coach, trainer, observer, and administrator and are essential to making Jumpstart a high quality program.
