In November 2012 the Jumpstart DC at American University's blog, jumpstartatau.blogspot.com, went officially live! American University Corps members will be posting throughout the year reflecting on their service, telling their "great stories" or sharing moments of frustration. It's a great way for you to learn more about the program and the impact we are making in the DC community. This content will also be echoed on the Jumpstart for Young Children's official blog, jstart.org/blog. Both blogs are updated frequently — be sure to check back often!
