Project Ubuntu Arrives in Juneau

Daniel Becton, creator of Project Ubuntu, visits JAMM
Daniel Becton visited JAMM for one week as part of Project Ubuntu - a national, year-long service project that celebrates and supports organizations dedicated to service throughout the United States.  As part of Project Ubuntu's mission, Daniel will visit one community in every state: 51 communities in 51 weeks. Daniel selected JAMM as the organization to represent the state of Alaska.  We marked the 35th week of his journey.

Becton supports Project Ubuntu's partners by channeling his skills and resources to meet their needs, and by sharing his perspective on service and building positive community.  He dedicates one week to each partner to learn their stories, and broadcasts these stories to a growing international audience as he strives to inspire increased kindness and service.

As part of his week of service in Juneau, Daniel visited all three JAMM sites, videotaped programming and interviewed parents and students to help produce a video about JAMM's expansion to Riverbend and Auke Bay Elementary Schools, as well as 2nd grade at Glacier Valley.  Daniel is a cellist, so he also was a wonderful asset to our beginning cello students.

Thank you, Daniel, for your service and for choosing JAMM as your Alaskan service organization!  For information about Project Ubuntu:  http://projectubuntu.info/
