JAMsj YOUTH We strive to bring the culture, history, and heritage back to the youth of the South Bay by using attractions, events, performances, and projects.

JAMsj Youth is led by a board of seven students composed of a president, vice president, and five directors. We have dedicated volunteers who have been committed to us for a few years as well as those new ambitious young faces working to make a difference in this organization.
