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.

2014 JASY Trip Recap
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 signed up for JASY because it was something that I always wanted to be a part of as an undergrad, but never had the opportunity to do. I feel that it is very important to educate through sport. It is something that I try to do in my career and I look forward to the challenge of teaching these children as much as I can.
Role at JASY Camp: At JASY camp I will be helping the children in the pool and taking pictures and video of our amazing journey!
