Mission Statement

Jamestown’s mission is to mobilize the resources of families, neighbors, and the community to help young people realize their full potential as empowered and productive citizens.

Description

Jamestown serves nearly 1,000 unduplicated K-12 youth with youth-development based afterschool and summer academic, tutoring, counseling, sports, leadership and employment programs. All of Jamestown’s programs are based on research showing that youth achieve significantly better outcomes if provided with five key youth development supports: safety, relationship building, skill building, youth involvement and community involvement.

Among the characteristics that set Jamestown apart from other youth development providers are: (1) cradle-to-career, year-round programming designed to engage a core group of neighborhood youth throughout every developmental stage of their childhood and adolescence; (2) varied programs designed to engage their unique interests and maximize opportunities for positive relationships with adults and peers; and (3) close partnership with local public schools to ensure that Jamestown’s programs contribute to school-day academic success. This model has been proven to be effective in closing the achievement gap experienced by many low-income youth.
