JAIA’s Vision is that each volunteer will experience a strong foundation of universal principles, rooted in a diverse community that supports, builds, and inspires personal growth and leadership. We are looking for skilled volunteers who can support JAIA in the following roles:
Just as I Am YOUth Empowerment (JAIA) believes strongly in transparency, integrity and accountability as integral parts of everything we do. From every purpose restricted donation, JAIA’s Board of Directors may allocate between 12% and 20% of that donation to cover its administrative and fundraising costs. If restricted donations exceed the need of the current crisis, the capacity to respond to a crisis and/or when local conditions prevent effective assistance, JAIA’s Board of Directors may allocate these funds to other worthy projects that help fulfill its mission of helping youth and families in need.
