The JUMP program is a program of the Montgomery County Youth Service Bureau. JUMP (Juvenile Mentoring Program) is a mentoring program that matches adult volunteers with boys and girls living in Montgomery County. They meet weekly or every other week to spend time and have fun together. It gives the child another person in their life to act as a support, role model and to be there to help our children make good decisions. These are good kids and their parents just want them to have every opportunity to explore and experience all that the world has to offer. Many times the parents cannot fulfill all these needs for their children so they look for positive role models willing to step up to the plate and be a part of their child’s life. Children with mentors have a higher success rate of graduating high school, staying out of trouble and not using drugs as well as going on to mentor others as adults.
The JUMP program offers a free monthly group activity for the Mentor and Mentee to attend, should they wish to do so! This month the group attended the Vanity Theater to see Aladdin Jr. Not only is attending the theater an experience many of these children might not otherwise have, but it is a fun time and a great childhood memory. After seeing the musical and many of the kids they go to school with participating, several kids mentioned they might want to try out and be in a play in the future. 
Question of the Week:

Should the state of Indiana pass comprehensive hate crime legislation?
