FloydJAMS introduces children to the traditional music that is their heritage. It also provides a positive after-school activity. Our program is based on many successful J.A.M programs in the Carolinas and Virginias. A group of traditional musicians and music educators has come together to provide this opportunity to fourth through twelfth graders. We meet Mondays after school at the June Bug Center from 3:00 to 5:30. The program provides access to the joy of music while instilling interest and pride in their heritage.
Young Life doesn't start with a program. It starts with adults who are concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don't happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust and consistency. We build these relationships in the hope that students would start a relationship with the Jesus Christ.
