Jamaica Service Trip
What is JASY?
Jamaican Advantage Thru Sports for Youth (JASY) provides two annual week-long summer camps for economically disadvantaged Jamaican youth from Kingston.
The main JASY camp utilizes sports training as a vehicle to improve self-esteem, physical well being, teamwork, Christian values and cross-cultural learning.
Jr. JASY features storytelling, art and crafts, music, and sports games with the hope of changing children’s lives.

Fisher Team Makes a Difference at 2014 Jamaican Sports Camp for Disadvantaged Youth
Right after walking across the stage at Commencement this year, several new graduates joined current students, faculty, staff, and fellow alumni on a trip to Jamaica where they volunteered for 10 days at the Jamaica Advantage Thru Sports Youth (JASY) Day Camp. This is the third trip to the camp that Fisher has organized—a trip that many refer to as “life-changing.”

Why did you sign up for JASY 2014?: I was immediately interested in JASY when I first received the email to apply. I have wanted to participate in a service trip outside the U.S. ever since high school. I've wanted to go somewhere where others do not think to travel; to connect with people who live completely different lives but are so full of life and happiness. These experiences offer so much to learn and become life-changing. And I believe Jamaica is my opportunity to connect with children and bring happiness to both our lives, not just for a week but for a lifetime.
