What is JCC’s Purpose?

To be a safe and creative learning community where young people from diverse backgrounds can take up their human right to a 21st Century education. At JCC we believe that a quality education nurtures lifelong learning. Our learners practice and improve their lifelong learning skills so they can build meaningful lives for themselves and others.

JCC strives for this outcome by building a safe community where diversity is respected and appreciated. Our learning is driven by curiosity, expanded through reflection, and maintained through perseverance. We believe that powerful, transferable learning happens, when learners are enabled to explore their passions and interests with others, and develop their personal agency.

This is our purpose.

How does JCC work to achieve this?

  • Through our everyday practice in which we ask ourselves: how can this moment provide opportunities for a young person to strengthen personal agency, work towards mastery and foster meaning and connection. What Lifelong Learning opportunities could this moment present?
  • Through our four pillars of practice:
    • Poststructural Human Service Practice
    • Student Centred Learning Practice
    • Community Development
    • Transdisciplinary Practice
  • And by working everyday to live out our five core values of: Relationships, Reflection, Respect, Responsibility, Rights.
