The JUMP! Foundation is an experiential education provider that was established in 2006 in response to what its founding members saw as a need in youth education for programs that address issues of leadership and global citizenship. In an increasingly “flatter” and more globalized world, the founders believed it was important to create a platform to facilitate awareness among youth not only of their own communities, but also awareness of the different communities around the world.
Today, JUMP! has a strong network of facilitators, partners, and advisors across the globe. We are a collaborative platform for participants to come together to challenge themselves, inspire one another, and affect change in their surroundings. JUMP! has delivered programs in Europe, Asia, Africa, and North America. We have utilized the outdoors, cityscapes, and other environments to engage and challenge participants. Our activities provoke reflection, dialogue and everyday application by encouraging individual resilience and broadened horizons. To date, we have delivered our programs directly to more than 19,000 participants, including youth and educators.
