Jump Street is a private, nonprofit community based arts incubator, serving Central Pennsylvania for over thirty years. Located in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Jump Street serves Cumberland, Dauphin, Lebanon, Schuylkill and Northern York Counties, with occasional projects expanding across Pennsylvania and beyond.
Our expertise is in arts based program development, consulting to artists and arts organizations, and community arts development. Jump Street, by supporting community and economic development through art, has successfully employed art in a way that makes it tangible and accessible to many who perceive the world of art as inaccessible and closed to the masses. Additionally, we employ artists allowing them to practice their area of artistry while sharing their skills and abilities. We provide a safe and encouraging atmosphere in which artists and students from diverse backgrounds can have what is very often their first experience with various art forms and cultures.
For young people, these arts processes offer a gateway to a broader education, workforce preparation, and richer lives. For Seniors, our Thrive! program offers social interaction, cultural experiences, and improved health and overall well-being.
