JMG Empathy Project at CMS

China Middle School JMG and Bar Harbor Bank and Trust continue to strengthen their partnership.  JMG was awarded a $500 Community Grant as seed funding for an empathy project, where students will learn the importance of philanthropy and community service.

Students will research non-profit businesses, identifying businesses that serve youth in our communities.  An invitation to apply for funding will be sent to businesses chosen by the students.  Businesses will be asked to present to students in the classroom about their organization and their needs to help better serve youth.  To complete the project, students will vote on the business(s) that they would like to support.

A wicked big thank you to Bar Harbor Bank and Trust for their continued support of the community and JMG.
