JUMP START HS curriculum was created to provide foster youth the opportunity to increase peer and faculty interaction with in their school. This intervention seeks to assist foster youth in their high school education, by connecting them with fellow peers and educators in their schools. The JUMP START HS curriculum seeks to provide foster youth with a well-rounded and supportive education, by creating homeroom classes consisting of both foster youth and non-foster youth, along with peer mentors and educators. The JUMP START HS curriculum guide was developed using multiple sources of information; each week is adapted from a lesson from an outside source. The introduction to each lesson provides reference to where the information, lessons and worksheets were obtained. Full citations can be found at the end of the JUMP START HS curriculum manual.
