Encouraging young people to make positive choices in their lives using mentoring and support.
To give hope to young people in the community, enabling them to make positive choices. We provide a first point of contact to the youth living within the Berkshire area to raise the awareness of alcohol drug, substance misuse and general wellbeing and to challenge their social attitudes based on Christian values and ethics.Why the community needs us
JAC provides help and support to young people in the Berkshire area raising the awareness of alcohol, drug and substance abuse and general well-being. Last year we had contact with 20,000 young people through various street and small group sessions. Recently our work has taken a new direction in emotional literacy work with primary school children. There is increased demand for our equine assisted learning programme at the JAC stables.Our impact on the community
