Mattie Rhodes Arts Center and Jumpstart- Kansas City, have been  pARTners of the Kansas City Chalk and Walk Festival for the last five years.  Their volunteers have volunteered their services at the festival’s Childrens Creative Corridor, with wonderful “make and take” items. 

Mattie Rhodes Art Center offers high quality visual art education programs that awaken creative spirits, enhance self-esteem, and teach valuable problem-solving skills. We believe that the arts should be a basic and integral part of every individual’s growth and development.

Jumpstart’s mission is to work toward the day every child in America enters school prepared to succeed. To this end, Jumpstart trains and supports college students to serve as part-time Corps members, working individually with young children to build skills crucial to school success.

Jumpstart focuses on three program areas: building school success for young children by fostering their early language, literacy, social and initiative skills; encouraging strong family involvement to help families support children’s learning; and training college students to be future teachers and leaders in early childhood education. Jumpstart serves young children in more than 60 communities nationwide.
