Alabama is ranked 47th in higher education. With our state currently trailing in consistent positive educational outcomes, this negatively influences our community. Lower education rates create higher probabilities of crime, poverty, depression, and incarceration/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.
Adult education can dramatically change people’s lives.
Birmingham Jumpstart’s classroom-style learning platform offers free materials, quality engagement time, safe spaces for growth, and practical social connections to enhance a student’s learning. When you donate your time and/or monetary gifts, you are empowering a person to acquire the necessary skills to reach their educational goals. Your impact will positively affect an adult learner to become better equipped to read a medical prescription, give a young adult a second chance at obtaining their GED for trade school or continuing education, or assist an immigrant in learning English. We maintain the standard that 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.
