Native American Jump Start is a U.S. registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization registered in the state of Wyoming EIN – 46-1314755. The organization was established to assist young native peoples in acquiring valuable life skills through internship opportunities across the U.S.
With unemployment rates as high as 85% across many Native American reservations, Native American Jump Start hopes to bridge the gap by building relationships between native young peoples and employers who are helping them make a difference.
The Mission of Native American Jump Start is to provide opportunities of growth and success for Native American individuals and families through education and employment. We are working to empower native youth and adults to create more enriched lives for themselves and their families, while respecting diversity and traditional values.
Our vision is to provide Native American individuals with greater opportunities and experiences in a variety of life circumstances.
We look to instill four virtues in participants of our program:
Respect – Integrity – Wisdom – Cultural Awareness
