Giving Back

GIVING BACK

Volunteering allows teens to not only give back to their community, but it also helps build character. Fostering a sense of purpose and pride, the act of giving back is a rewarding process for both those in need and the volunteer.

All persons entering SJJCC who are over the eligible age of 12 are required to be fully vaccinated.
