Welcome New Hires!
Executive Director Susan Rios, and myself, would like to happily welcome you to our staff and agency. Jumpstart Enrichment for Tomorrow’s Students is a place of love and learning, where children and their families are nurtured and valued as they grow for the betterment of the entire community. We could not be happier that you’ve chosen to partner with us in our ongoing endeavor to provide quality education to the children in our community.

JETS Technology Team keeps a record of usernames, passwords, and pin numbers. Usernames are given out in the format of First Name Initial + Last Name. (ex: Jane Doe = JDoe).

JETS values the hard work, effort, dedication, and love that comes from each of our staff members and we expect only quality work from these individuals as the community has come to expect a quality agency from us.
