Currently, Alabama is ranked 47th in education. Our state’s lack of education negatively influences our community. Lower education rates create higher probabilities for crime, depression, and recidivism. Birmingham Jumpstart’s goal is to foster an empowering, education-based community for our city. By investing in people, we hope to create a safer, healthier community for everyone.
We offer virtual classes as well as limited in-person class sessions. Please fill out the Student Sign-up form and we will get you connected to one of our class sessions. All adult classes are available at no charge and are open to the public.
Adult education can dramatically change people’s lives. Birmingham Jumpstart’s classrooms offer free materials, social connections, and safe spaces to learn in. By donating time or monetary funds, you are empowering a person to reach their goals. Perhaps it is an adult learner being able to read their prescription, or giving a young adult a second chance at obtaining their GED for trade school or continuing education, or an immigrant learning English. Whoever comes to us for aid in academics will receive our undivided attention. Partner with us today as we seek to eradicate adult illiteracy and improve education in Birmingham, Alabama.
