J.A.C. Unlimited, Inc is different from other organizations because we engage the whole family. We believe the foundation starts at home so we promote parent involvement while mentoring and/or tutoring the child. We take a collaborate effort with the child, parent, and school take an assessment of what is going on in the child’s life (home and school) and how the child would benefit for programs J.A.C. Unlimited, Inc offers. Once information is gathered our Coordinator would then develop an Individual Plan of Success (IPS). In this plan it will determine which program is more appropriate for the child mentoring, violence prevention, Life Skill and Leadership develop, and tutoring. The plan will have goals that the child has set. We are about evidence base practicing. We are about seeing progress.
