Since 1974, Berkeley County Youth Services Center, Inc. has been helping to make a difference in the lives of children and youth in our community. Doing business as, Junior Mentoring Programs (JUMP), we serve children, aged 6-18, who are primarily from single parent families. We currently serve 150 children, with approximately 50 waiting to be matched with an adult mentor.
Our success results from the generous contributions of time and support from the community. For as little as 3-5 hours, two times a month, you too can be a part of a beautiful relationship with a child. This is all the time we ask of you to devote to a child.
