Since 2014, JAX has worked with local artists, educators, community leaders, and business owners to present youth arts & tech programs, art shows, and music performances, in and around the Jersey City community. Following the success of these grassroots efforts, we have expanded to offer school-based services for youth.
In 2018-19 JAX was awarded a contract with the Jersey City Housing Authority to bring after-school programming to two of their location: Hudson Gardens and Holland Gardens. Our new program entitled PLAY! offers youth high quality after school enrichment activities that focus on the power of play. Play! will appeal to youth by offering arts, technology, and enrichment activities to help kids learn through play, with a focus on academic assistance, STEM curriculum, arts, and recreation for youth grades 2 through 8th.
