G2G (Generation to Generation)
|G2G (Generation to Generation) provides interactive activities for middle school and high school students with the JAA community and residents. We also partner with schools and youth / teen groups in our area. Through them, we sponsor inter-generational volunteer opportunities that bridge these groups and the JAA.|
