Jack Lew, OMB Director, at Jumpstart Event

Posted by Zach Maurin on October 6, 2011

I just got back from Jumpstart’s very exciting national initiative, Read for the Record, where people are reading to children all over the country.  Why is this important?

“Millions of children in low-income neighborhoods are at risk of school failure before they even start kindergarten.  Jumpstart’s Read for the Record®, presented in partnership with the Pearson Foundation, allows Americans to demand that all children receive the quality early education they deserve.”

It was fantastic that Jack Lew, the Director of the Office of Management and Budget, stopped by to read to a child and show his support for Jumpstart and all of AmeriCorps.  Mr. Lew and OMB are critical decision-makers in the future of funding for the Corporation for National and Community Service.

Read more about the national event and the effort to set a world record.

Congrats to the Jumpstart team for a great event in DC and a successful national campaign!
