The Reason We Care
Updated: Aug 15, 2021
Many children in Jaco grow up without positive parental guidance in their life and here at Support Jaco Youth we want to give these kids a sense of community, support and a way to grow a hobby or possibly make an income. We are always looking for ways to make a difference and enjoy hearing new thoughts and ideas.
At Support Jaco Youth, we strive to promote positive growth and influences among the youth of Jaco, Costa Rica. These children face various challenges daily and Support Jaco Youth was established to offset these difficulties. Since it’s formation nearly 12 years ago, SJY has contributed to the growth of the local Christian Surfers Chapter, led beach clean up days, sponsored surf contests and skateboard contests, sponsored addicts in drug impatient programs and their families, sponsored the local boxing gym and we’re just getting started. We appreciate you visiting our site and hope you enjoy seeing all of the encouraging change happening in our community.
"So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you... " Matthew 7: 14
We believe in giving back! And we hope you do too!
We offer tutoring, boxing, and jui jitsu along with our own basketball team for the boys.
