JumpStart Youth Connection is a nonprofit organization run by local educators, social workers and philanthropists dedicated to the enrichment of our community’s youth.  Our mission is to provide academic, social and physical education opportunities to greater Lower Merrimack Valley’s Youth.


Jumpstart Youth Connection was started by two local teachers, Joseph Costello, MEd., and James Queenan, MEd.  JumpStart is a non profit organization dedicated to providing children in need with positive educational and social experiences.  We are also dedicated to providing a safe and positive recreation alternative to teens who would otherwise be unsupervised during after school hours.  The Non-Profit was formed after an exceptionally successful after school program began showing impressive results.
