2022-2023 Community Service Projects

Happy Feet/Fun Day With JA – Fun Day with JA provides social activities for two of our often overlooked populations – the elderly and children/young adults with exceptional abilities.  For our Social Seniors program, we partner with local nursing homes to host activities such as bingo, Christmas caroling, and arts & crafts.  Our signature event for our extraordinary young people is Happy Feet.  This program provides free line dancing classes each Saturday for 4-5 consecutive weeks in the Spring.

Hearts United– Hearts United is our NAJA-mandated child welfare project.  Through our Adopt-A-Family program, we are helping a single mother obtain the resources needed to break the cycle of poverty for her and her two children.  Skills shared have included: meal planning, budgeting & financial planning, resume writing, and interviewing skills.  We have also provided them with school supplies, celebratory gifts for birthdays & holidays, and opportunities for socialization.

Teens In Service – JAS members mentor up to 20 high school juniors and seniors introducing them to volunteerism in our community by assisting in several service projects throughout the school year.
