Why Our Work is Important

SKJAJA is committed to ensuring that every student in Orange County has access to meaningful out-of-school enrichment activities and transformational extracurricular opportunities. We believe that every child deserves to explore their passions and discover who they are outside the classroom and as citizens of the world.


As schools pivot and rebound from the negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, extracurricular activities and community connection are more essential than ever to the social, emotional and mental health of students in grades K-12. SKJAJA is committed to working with Orange County and Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools (CHCCS) to support our youth through this transition and beyond.

SKJAJA Youth

Whether it’s cello lessons or art classes, multi-day field trips or math tutoring, SKJAJA students have engaged in a wide variety of enrichment activities. 

 

SKJAJA Partners

Community is at the heart of everything we do. SKJAJA is proud to partner with Orange County and Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools and local youth and community organizations to provide students meaningful out-of-school enrichment experiences. We are grateful that our work is supported by individuals and businesses within and beyond our community.
