Since our inception, JAIA’s programs and services have reached more than 200 BIPOC, LGBTQ, and immigrant youth yearly. These young people have been positively impacted by JAIA’s life coaches, peer facilitators, mentors, and volunteers. But our work is not done! "Over 2.5 million youth in the U.S. have severe depression, and 75% of 18 to 24-year-olds reported at least one adverse mental or behavioral symptom.” (CDC 2021)
That’s why JAIA is #RaisingTheVibration, to remind everyone to be intentional about pouring love into our youth and our community. The goal of this campaign is to raise $25,000. These funds will support The Mindful Leaders Institute and our Healthy Minds/ Healthy Vibes Program, which provide NYC youth with tools for mental health literacy, mindful leadership, and moral/ethical decision-making. Through these acts of love and service, JAIA raises the vibration of our youth, and we want you to join us.
With your help, we know we will reach our goal.
