Since 2000, Hoban has offered a summer service project called JAM or Justice Akron Ministry. JAM is a three-day social justice service project that students can choose to complete while they build community with one another and grow in their faith.

2024 DATES

  • JAM 1: June 10-12

  • JAM 2: June 18-20

Rising freshman, sophomore and junior students can apply to attend either JAM session. Space is limited in each JAM session. Serving others can be an uncomfortable new experience. Students who enter JAM with a positive attitude have much better experiences. 

For more information, contact jam@hoban.org.

JAM is one of my fondest memories from Hoban. It was a way to connect with other Hoban students and people throughout the community in a more meaningful way. One fo the first experiences I had with special education was through JAM, which helped me find my passion for teaching in the field.
