“It’s very important to me to be able to use my experiences to raise public awareness through charity, in addition to completing personal challenges and goals.
The charity fund JJ-Street Child and Family Fund was created in 2013 specifically to change the lives of youths and aid them in better achieving their goals through new challenges and better educational opportunities. Offering youths the opportunity to aid others allows them to effect positive influence in their communities.
Since as a young boy I didn’t get enough attention from my parents, I know how important it is for youths to be noticed. I believe that positivity creates more good than bad.
This is also largely why I wanted to start charity projects that are both topical and necessary!” – Joel Juht
JJ-Street Child and Family Fund changes the lives of youths, helping them realize their full potential. Offering challenges, unique experiences, daily adventures and opportunities to aid others, youths learn to effect a positive influence on their communities.
JJ-Street coaches support youths in developing skills, focusing on the importance of teamwork, time management, initiative, planning, communication, self-understanding, cultural awareness and dedication. The JJ-Street Child and Family Fund helps youths gain work experience, save lives, and in the grand scheme – change the world.
