JCF is a student-led nonprofit that inspires, engages, and strengthens the community through innovative leadership and service. High school students of the Josephine County Foundation (JCF) use their energy and creativity to improve the social and economic well being of Josephine County. Working with local leaders, students identify community needs and perform service projects to address those needs. JCF students learn valuable leadership and teamwork skills by managing their service projects, operating a non-profit business, and raising funds for their projects. Through JCF, students are becoming an experienced generation of philanthropists with a lifelong commitment to the community.
