Happy Birthday, JOY!
This week, Team JOY is celebrating our organization's 2nd birthday and 1st full year as an operational nonprofit. Check out what we've been up to this year!
In its first year, JOY has already laid the foundations for sustainable relationships between universities and schools and orphanages serving at-risk youth -- relationships that support deserving ministries. But, oh the places we'll go! More universities, more student leaders, and more children sponsored. Stay tuned as we expand to new universities, form impactful partnerships between businesses and ministries, and much more!
We're inviting you to our next birthday party! RSVP by joining in joyful service with us in the coming year:
In our spring newsletter, you'll get up-to-date on all things JOY, see our impact, and meet students like Cory Pisano:
"Just two weeks ago my pastor at church said at service that “we all end up somewhere, but not all of us end up somewhere on purpose”. That message hit me hard as I pursue this plan of spending two years back serving the children in the Dominican Republic. This whirlwind started with JOY, and I now want nothing more than for it to end in joy."
