BUSINESS / ORGANIZATION:
The JCS ProjectHouston, TX
ABOUT THE BUSINESS / ORGANIZATION:The JCS Project: Just College Students focuses on encouraging young students to not only go to college but to finish. We do this by giving FREE College Care Packages. The care packages that we give are not just boxes of food, school supplies and materials, but it is packed with encouraging words, volunteer opportunities throughout the community and most importantly LOVE!
THE STORY:It all started when my cousin, Taylor Jones, enrolled at Blinn College. I felt like it was my responsibility to provide for her. I first started sending her money in the mail. Then it fell upon my heart to start providing FREE College Care Packages to her, a few other cousins and co-workers children. What started out as 5 girls has now expanded to over 3000 students.
ACCOMPLISHMENTS / ACCOLADES / AWARDS:While The JCS Project has received numerous awards for community service my proudest moments have been seeing all the college students who have received packages graduate!!!
SUCESS:In my opinion success is defined by helping at least one student. The worst part of success is that I can not help them all.
OUTLOOK:In the next 5-10 years I see JCS being able to expand our Campus Tour. Currently we drive to multiple colleges all throughout the year passing out 100 Free College Care Packages. We attend 6-10 schools a year. I would love to expand to Georgia, Tennessee, Florida, California, etc.
