After 10 years of programming and over 5,000 youth served, Global Potential (GP) will merge with JUMP! Development, a program of the JUMP! Foundation, to form the JUMP! Development Fund. This NYC-based 501(c)3 will maintain its brand as the Global Potential Project.
The alignment of programming between Global Potential and JUMP! is rooted back to 2009 when the JUMP! Foundation began partnering with Global Potential to fund Youth-led GP/JUMP! Leadership Conferences in the U.S. and Latin America. Informed by the work with Global Potential, the JUMP! Foundation built JUMP! Development to provide similar programming to under-resourced communities around the world.
This merger unites 19 years of institutional experience in youth development, experiential education, and international travel, with combined project locations in New York City, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar, Indonesia, China, Nepal, and Kenya. With social impact mission alignment, the programmatic elements are primed to integrate smoothly.
Please stay tuned as we will share details about this merger and opportunities for your continued involvement and support! Until then, we wish you a wonderful New Year! May 2018 bring you happiness and good health!
