Part of giving our children a global education means opening their eyes to how they can contribute to the world. JAIS and its families believe that community involvement is an important value to model to our children. Through these experiences, we all benefit with increased awareness, expansion of our horizons and building relationships within our community. We believe that we can all do more to be citizens of the world, including:

  • Giving back to our community through service projects
  • Participating in community events & supporting community members
  • Taking responsibility and action to preserve our environment

JAIS students are involved in giving back to our community through service projects. Staff and families are invited to recommend and participate in projects in our community. Here are some examples:

  • Serving meals
  • Collecting canned food, clothing & toys
  • Picking up trash and cleaning
  • Recycling
  • Working with disabled students
  • Developing relationships with the local elderly population
  • Fundraising for international and local causes

Recent Service Projects: On-campus recycling, Leket canned food drive, Unicef fundraiser for the Philippines, Shalva fundraiser and marathon support, Alyn Hospital toy drive and visit, Hand in Hand fundraiser and visit, and Senior Home visits.
