Project Jumpstart New York State
Driving dreams forward
Every day, our partners keep New York State moving—to work, school, dinners with friends, family reunions, and more. And we want to support the causes that move them forward. Uber's Project Jumpstart supports local initiatives that are closest to our New York State partners' hearts and empowers them to spark change in their community.
