Fostering the whole individual through life-long connections.
Collaborating with a diverse group of innovators through creative exchange to make a difference in the world.
We at Jumping Sun believe every individual reflects on their tasks daily. This reflection may sometimes become overwhelming and confusing. If you have a strong foundation of identity you adjust and realign your purpose to the task. You find your centeredness and "go back out" into the world continuing your contributions to society. Your schema or episodes in life builds your current character and shows through all you do. Mentoring, we believe is a strong component to building a strong identity. The individual, regardless of race, ethnicity, and religion all have background knowledge that would help their peers worldwide.
We look forward to hearing from you.
