JAMaROO Kids is committed to being involved in the community both locally and globally. As JAMaROO Kids grows, we’ll continue to increase our volunteer efforts and financial contributions to charities that inspire us.
Our Volunteer Efforts in the classroom:
In Spring of 2009, JAMaROO Kids received a Grant from First 5 Marin which allowed us to offer our services at two different state funded preschools: The Canal Children’s Center and The Marin Learning Center. Although this grant only funded programs for a year, JAMaROO Kids has continued to volunteer our services at these schools weekly!
Our Local Community Jamaica Stevens, Founder & Executive Director of JAMaROO Kids, volunteers her time once a month to lead a parent tot music circle at Rita Da Cascia located in the Western Addition of San Francisco. Jamaica has been a member of the Glide Ensemble since 1998 and JAMaROO Kids has been committed to a monthly pledge to the Glide Foundation. Katie McGowan, Director of Yoga Programs & JAMaROO Kids Instructor participated in the Aids Ride from San Francisco to LA in both 2009 and 2010. JAMaROO Kids was proud to be one of her sponsors.
Our Global Community Through Companion International we sponsor a young boy named Jesus who lives in Colombia with his family. Our sponsorship includes monthly contributions as well as written correspondence. We are also proud supporters of One Mama, Teach with Africa, San Francisco Parks Trust, California Film Institute, and Young Imaginations. We hope that our work in the community will inspire you to learn more about the organizations that we support and love.
