The way JUMP works

Join Us to Maximize our Potential

Solving social problems such as education inequality and social polarization will take a long time and cannot be accomplished by one individual or organization.
JUMP aims to bridge the gap in our society with various partners who have the will to solve social problems.

JUMP’s Multilateral Public-Private Partnerships

Governments, corporations, and nonprofit social ventures solve problems
by focusing on their comparative advantages.
Public-Private Partnerships

Many actors in our society already care deeply about inequality in education and opportunity and are working to solve the problem, but because it’s a complex issue with many stakeholders, not much has been accomplished.

JUMP thought, “Couldn’t we do much better if we combined our efforts to solve the problem?” and found a way to create a multilateral public-private partnership, where governments, corporations, and nonprofit social ventures tackle the problem by focusing on their comparative strengths.

JUMP has proven through a 10-year program in partnership with corporations, municipalities, and universities that multilateral collaboration can solve our society’s problems more fundamentally and effectively.

Through this program, JUMP has been selected as an ‘Impact SPC’ team in the Social Performance Incentive for its high level of social growth and social performance relative to economic performance, and as a finalist in the Google Impact Challenge as a representative changemaker leading social change.

JUMP’s multilateral public-private partnerships are recognized as a representative model of sustainable social contribution, as each party can lower the cost and risk of participating in the project by sharing a common vision and focusing on their comparative advantages.

Features of JUMP’s Multilateral Cooperation Model

Government and public sector
(Public sector)

  • Necessity
    As social issues become more complex and diversified, governments are finding it difficult to respond to rapidly growing social needs with limited budgets. Governments can efficiently complement the public sector through a cooperative model.
  • Benefits
    – Reduce the cost and risk of business participation.
    – Participatory decision-making with input from stakeholders, including citizens and partners.
    – Gain expertise and efficiency as well as fair operational processes.
    – Gain strong partnerships with businesses and civil society.
  • Role
    Within the multilateral cooperation model, governments and public entities focus on the role of providing “public assurance” by overseeing whether the project is fulfilling its public purpose. The government’s public credibility also enables a wide range of public collaborations.
  • Government / Public Partners
    – Seoul Metropolitan Government, Gyeongsangbuk-do, Gyeonggi-do, Seongdong-gu, Seongbuk-gu, Seodaemun-gu, Daegu Seo-gu Office, Ministry of Employment and Labor, Seoul Scholarship Foundation, Seoul Metropolitan Office of Education, Korea Land and Housing Corporation, Seoul Housing Corporation, Jeju Social and Economic Support Center, Incheon International Airport Corporation, Gangwon Land, etc.

(Private sector)

  • Necessity
    The public and consumers of our time are sensitive to corporate righteousness. A company’s philosophy of pursuing ethical and social values is an important factor in communicating with the public. Through the cooperation model, companies can genuinely win the empathy and respect of the public, and fulfill their corporate social responsibility more efficiently.
  • Efficiency
    – Companies can make business decisions that are not only efficient but also ethical.
    – Demonstrate social value that exceeds financial value to the organization.
    – Improve consumer loyalty and employee satisfaction.
    – Gain stronger partnerships with governments and civil society.
  • Role
    Realize the social role of corporate citizenship by solving social problems through voluntary capital participation, while reducing the fiscal burden on governments and administrative opportunity costs. Together with civil society, we solve social problems in an autonomous and creative way and contribute to the creation of a sustainable social economic ecosystem.
  • Corporate Partners
    – Hyundai Motor Group, Air Liquide Korea, Smilegate, Hanwha Life, Kolon, Microsoft, Google, Elegant Brothers, etc.

(Civil society)

  • Features
    JUMP is in charge of partner cooperation and communication channels. In case of conflicts due to differences in goals, language, and implementation methods between governments and companies, we jointly solve problems through mutual learning and deliberation.
    JUMP’s specialized operational know-how and network provide more effective services than governments and companies directly addressing social issues.
    We have created a virtuous cycle of tangible and intangible benefits in the interaction between the participants – youth, university students, and professional mentors – and this becomes a driving force for sustainable problem solving.
