"When They Win We Win"

The highest priority of JAM is to promote education and self-love in our community. We believe in taking action with urgency in order to raise public awareness about some of the most pressing issues facing our youth in today’s society.

Hugging a Puppy


Founded in 1999 by Meshawn Calhoun, JAM has made tremendous impact thanks to the help of members and volunteers in the Bloomington-Normal community. The core of our work lies in the continuous passion and dedication we bring to the range of projects we take part in. Please join us by supporting our efforts to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others.

What We Do

Recognizing the enormity of the challenges our society faces, JAM is dedicated to making a lasting impact. While our efforts are driven by our organization’s focus, we spread a wide net by investing in our youth and our community.
