Why We Do What We Do
The team of young people that started Jumpstart Academy saw the problem of unemployment in many Nigerian youths and also the corruption in leadership. Rather than join forces with complainers, we decided to start a revolution, one that will change the course of history.
We developed the Jumpstart Model that will ensure that the history of Nigeria and Africa will not determine her present and future. We invested in young people – the next generation of Nigerians and Africans.
First, we aim to fix the broken educational system through quality academic support – a new model in learning where learning is centered on the learners. Then Leadership, because in the future they hope to create, there is a need for stronger institutions in government to be built. Also, innovations and entrepreneurship must become one so as to enable the creation of jobs for over 1 billion Africans.

Their ages range between 13-18years and are all from public secondary schools. They get the various support and quality training at Jumpstart Academy at no cost.
