JAM is coming up and it’s going to be DIFFERENT in 2022-2023. We have a whole new plan and we are excited for the kids as well as the volunteers. We think the kids will be more engaged with this new activity-based curriculum and it will be much easier for volunteers. We are hoping for a refreshing year after taking several steps backwards during COVID. We know schedules are tight, but we think this curriculum will require little planning for the volunteers. The more help we have the more we potentially will be able to rotate volunteer needs to every other week. Can I show you more?
