Volunteer Events

Pace Jumpstart offers several opportunities throughout the year to volunteer with the organization. We welcome volunteers including Pace faculty and staff to support Jumpstart programming. You can commit for a year, a month, a week or a day. No time is too short!

If you are a Pace student in need of service-learning course credit, we can provide documentation of your service participation as long as your instructor approves the Jumpstart volunteer placement.

  • Read for the Record—Jumpstart’s national literacy awareness campaign
  • Eric Carle—Celebration of Eric Carle’s books such as Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, and The Grouchy Ladybug.
