Mission

Jump Start is a King*Chavez*Parks Initiative of the State of Michigan designed to improve retention rates of academically and economically disadvantaged students through academic and career workshops and networking opportunities.

Jump Start students are teamed up with upperclassmen peer mentors. Peer mentors design programs to meet the specific needs of their students, including study sessions, career exploration sessions and social activities. These programs help participants become acclimated to life as a college student, life at NMU, and life in the city of Marquette.
