This rating was published 03/01/2022 and includes data from FY2020, the most recent 990 received at that time.

Jamestown Community Center's philosophy is simple - provide youth with as many positive experiences as they need in order to grow up healthy and productive. To accomplish this goal, Jamestown employs very intricate strategies. First, we use well-researched youth development theory and practice as the underlying framework for program design, implementation, and evaluation. This approach emphasizes young people's resiliency in the face of challenges and recognizes their natural urge to grow up to be successful adults. Second, we offer youth the opportunity to participate in Jamestown year after year, from age 0 to 18. To deepen their engagement, youth are encouraged to join more than one Jamestown program. Ultimately, we hope to watch these youth graduate from both high school and from Jamestown.
