Jump Start helps young people achieve their full potential through the development of vital life skills
required to ensure a successful transition into life after education.
We do this by delivering energetic, interactive workshops that introduce students to the fundamentals of
effective communication, personal brand, entrepreneurship and other integral employability skills, all
underpinned by the Core Skills for Work Developmental Framework.
Jump Start works with schools to create tailored face-to-face and online skill-building programs aligned
to your school’s core values, learning objectives and student needs, and supported by the expertise of our
comprehensive team of program developers and facilitators.
