JUMP! Foundation creates interactive, empowering learning experiences using activities that focus on personal growth, community building and leadership. Our programs are rooted in transformational learning, in which people experience a profound shift in their understanding of self, others and the way the world works. All our programs can be custom designed (in-person or online), according to the needs of your school and students.
Why J! Schools?
Today our world needs leaders who are self-aware, empathetic, and understand that to create a positive shift in the world we need everyone to come together.
Our school programs are designed to help students gain insights into themselves and understand layers of how our society functions. Our work is not just about creating leaders that go on to take various roles but leaders that understand themselves, the world around them and what is essential to bringing communities together.
The goal is to challenge the status quo and create individuals who operate with a sense of purpose and values. This collectively will impact how they operate as leaders in their communities and help them develop leadership skills to build upon for a lifetime.

This program offers a critical deep dive into self and systems in society. Students are led to self-reflect and engage in dialogue focused on creating more inclusive communities where people feel a greater sense of connection, agency, and belonging.

A Word from Our Team
JUMP! was founded with the aspirational goal of making transformational learning experiences accessible to all. We had no expectations that JUMP! would grow into a global organization impacting thousands of people.
With support from our worldwide community of partners, we focus our efforts and passion on creating experiences that bring groups of students together for personal development. Through a collaborative approach in our design process, we ensure a variety of perspectives and experiential knowledge goes into each moment of our programs.
We believe, wholeheartedly, in the transformational outcomes participants experience as a result of their experience. With gratitude to our current, past, and future partners, we are excited to continue to create life-changing moments around the world for many years to come.
