Over two million people are currently incarcerated in the United States, and of those two million, 95% will be released back into our communities. Most of these men and women will leave prison unprepared and under-resourced to reenter society. We believe that gospel-centered discipleship is the solution to help those incarcerated find purpose and a productive life after prison.
We invite you to help us raise $325,000 to give towards the construction of JUMPSTART's Opportunity Center. That amount would put them at 65% of the project cost. We believe that this is important enough for JUMPSTART that we have committed to match every dollar necessary to reach the $325,000 goal.
We currently have two primary opportunities to serve with JUMPSTART—inside volunteers and outside mentoring.
Facilitate and lead discipleship programs inside of correctional institutions. You will be a part of a team that enters the prison regularly to encourage, inspire, teach, and facilitate the discipleship classes.
Mentors who come alongside a man or woman who has been released from prison and help them reintegrate into society. Other outside mentors use their gifts and experience in a variety of ways to help with social media engagement, fundraising, prayer teams, and just about anything else you can think of to accomplish the mission.
