JC Leaders In the Village (LIV)

A Group for Non-traditional Caregivers in Jones County

Are you a Leader In the Village?

This group seeks to offer information, resources, and support to non-traditional caregivers such as grandparents, foster parents, and others who may be raising non-biological children. During the 2021-2022 school year, we look forward to meeting monthly via Zoom. Just RSVP to receive the link to the meeting.

LIV Zoom Meeting

Wednesday, Oct. 20th, 10am

This is an online event.

Our October meeting will be led by Dr. Trevis Killen, JCSS Executive Director of Student Services. Our topic will be helping students and caregivers to understand the many feelings that may arise when living in a non-traditional family setting. He will also provide tips for effective and encouraging communication when talking with chilldren.

RSVPs are enabled for this event.

Below is that Handbook that we will use to guide our monthly LIV meetings this year. You may pick up a copy at the JC Board Office. If that is not convenient for you, just let us know, and we will make arrangements to get a copy to you.
