Operation Jump Start
Community Service OrganizationsNon-Profit Organizations
Serving Long Beach youth for over 25 years, Operation Jump Start's mission is to help under-resourced, first- generation college students get in, stay in, and graduate from college. OJS does this by providing academic support, mentoring, and exposure to a broader world — including college tours and fun social activities. Students from low-income backgrounds who aspire to be the first in their families to go to college are invited to apply to the program. If you are interested in volunteering, become a mentor to one of our wonderful scholars!
