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.

Why did you sign up for JASY 2014?: I signed up for JASY Camp because I love working with children and am passionate about volunteering not only in my community, but in other areas of the world. I enjoy outdoor activities and sports, especially when I get to coach youth groups or work with kids, so JASY was the perfect fit for my interests and goals.
