The third Advanced Maintenance Technician (AMT) cohort of the industrial technology program at JSCC hosted a party for Boys & Girls Club kids Friday evening, April 21. Eight AMT students have participated in a service learning project that has involved them as tutors and mentors to approximately 40 children of the Boys & Girls Club.
Boys & Girls Club director Sabrina Anderson stated that the assistance provided to her young people by AMT students has made a real difference in their lives. According to Anderson, "The assistance provided has given the youth more self-confidence as well as better grades."
As the semester and the project come to a close, the AMT students brought their mentees to JSCC for some fun and food. The AMT students gave demonstrations to their mentees to show them better what their studies in industrial technology entail.
