Description

Music in Common’s JAMMS program is an experiential learning program for teens of diverse faiths, cultures, and ethnicities to discover common ground through dialogue and creative collaboration. Facilitated discussion on topics related to culture, race, and religion provides a deeper understanding of how identity influences self-perception and perception of others. Students work together to write and record a song and produce a video that addresses an issue important to them collectively. JAMMS empowers participants with an acute appreciation of their similarities and differences and a greater respect for “the other”. Students gain self-confidence and strong communication and collaborative skills to help them constructively manage issues of bullying and social / cultural conflict in school, their communities, and in society. The program performance and YouTube video widen the number of people served exponentially. A program for American-born Berkshire County Teens and Springfield area Teen Refugees will take place in April 2018. Participants are never charged for their participation. Your contribution will provide one day’s tuition for one teen to participate in a JAMMS program serving American-born Berkshire and Springfield refugee high schools students in 2018.
