FIND YOUR JAM
We are a social enterprise that uses cultural influencers to help adolescents build self-advocacy skills. We deliver Jam Sessions: on-site, culturally relevant learning events that provide a safe space for youth to celebrate who they are, explore who they want to become and how they’re going to get there.
Since 2011, we've jammed in 15 states with over 50,000 youth.
The 21st century offers an unprecedented level of connectedness to the world. How are adolescents navigating identity exploration and development through it?
From interviews to personal statements, when the world prompts youth to “tell me about yourself,” they’re expected to have something meaningful to say. The greater the barriers to access, the harder it can be to develop self-advocacy skills (especially for underserved and low-income populations).
Youth need permission to be in the driver’s seat (a hall pass) – along with tools and support to explore who they are, who they want to become and how they’re going to get there.
