NSP has a wonderful partnership with Jumpstart - a national nonprofit - going strong for 6+ years now.   One of the strengths of University of Chicago students are their diverse interests and willingness to try new things!  One of the things we've looked for in our non-school community partners is the degree to which they are bringing some kind of training, unique perspective, or relationships that can help develop our students' capacity to make a positive impact in the world and enable them to contribute in areas that they couldn't without the partnership.

Jumpstart has been the model partner for our program at NSP, we've been able to extend our program's reach in an area (early childhood education) that was identified as area of need by our community partners, which also happened to be an area of interest for University of Chicago students.

As part of our partnership, Jumpstart hires a site coordinator who manages the UChicago program - over the years we've had 3* really great coordinators that have managed great programs! Every year we've engaged CPS Pre-K classrooms at 3 schools and created opportunities for about 50 University of Chicago students to learn about early childhood education practices, learn and implement a curriculum, and really get to build relatiohships with 150 3 and 4 year olds in the neighborhood.   Through the program, the kids get additional literacy activities that builds upon what they're learning in their regular classes and they get make new friends!
