JA Step to Success (JASTS) develops a foundation of college aspiration among 3rd grade students in the School District of Philadelphia.

JASTS volunteers guide students on a visit through a local campus to gain a better understanding of student life. Volunteers are provided with a guide to assist students in visualizing themselves on campus and beginning to understand key college terms. Ideal volunteers would be faculty, current students or alumni who are interested in inspiring students to believe in themselves, and showing them that college is a reality. Background clearances and training are required.

  • LOCATION: On Campus
