JCS traditionally meets on MLK Day to participate in a community service project. The following video was created by JCS students in 2012.
Through service to others, we strive to develop in our students both empathy and a feeling of efficacy, at the community level and beyond. Students have the opportunity to design and implement their own service projects, as well as participate in school–wide projects. Service learning is a regular part of the curriculum and is required for graduation.
JCS has built ongoing partnerships with various community organizations, which give our students regular opportunities to both contribute to and be a part of their community. Throughout the years JCS has partnered with the Northwest Maritime Center, Port Townsend Film Institute, the Main Street Program, North Olympic Salmon Coalition, Swan School, SongwritingWorks, and the Recyclery.
