    2013 Annual Report

  • Greetings JUMP! Community,

    What does JUMP! stand for? JUMP facilitators hear this question a lot. Obviously, as facilitators we often answer the question with another question:

    What do you think it stands for? For me personally, JUMP! stands for many amazing things. It stands for years of challenge, years of growth and years of unyielding passion. It stands for an uncompromising commitment from our amazing community of supporters and champions. It stands for people coming together all around the world to do amazing things. It stands for creating the type of world that we want to live in. It stands for standing up so other people can stand and support others to stand.

    But at our core, I feel our organization stands for opportunity. Opportunity for all people in the world to have the experience of being filled with so much inspiration that they have to change, grow, develop and act. Opportunity for all people to be empowered by skills, experiences and perspectives. Opportunity for all people to make the kind of world that they want to live in.

    In our programs, we challenge participants to ask themselves some difficult questions, to look inside and use reflection as a powerful point to grow and to learn form. After years of expanding and developing, JUMP! decided to spend 2013 looking at the internal functions of our organization and focused intensely on building a more sustainable model for how we operate. It paid off. As you will see in the pages that follow, we have many accomplishments to report, but one of the biggest accomplishments is that, in December 2013, we officially graduated from a “start-up” into a self-sustaining organization. This was a tremendous JUMP! point for our organization, and we are confident that JUMP! will be around for many years to come. We are honored by all the support that we have received from all of you: the JUMP! Global Community.

    Light, love and Laughter,

    Justin Bedard Executive Director

    Looking Back // 2013


    The JUMP! Foundation is a social enterprise that offers experiential education programs. Established in 2006, JUMP! was created in re- sponse to what its founding members saw as a need in youth education for programs that address issues of leadership and global citi- zenship. In a world that has become flatter and more accessible through new media and globalization, they believed it was important to create a platform from which to facilitate among youth within their own communities as well as with youth in other communities.

    Today, JUMP! has a strong network of facilitators, partners and advisors across the globe. We act as a collaborative platform for participants to come together to challenge themselves, inspire one another, and affect change in their surroundings. JUMP! has delivered programs throughout Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and North America. We have utilized the outdoors, cityscapes and various other environments to engage and challenge participants. Our activities provoke reflection, dialogue and everyday application by encouraging individual resilience and broadened horizons. To date, we have delivered our programs directly to over 15,000 youth.

    2013 was an exciting time for JUMP! Schools programs. We began the year redesigning our curriculum, launching the INSPIRE, EMPOWER and ENGAGE program series. The redesign came from a desire to offer more depth to our engagement with students and partners. It was exciting to see o
