Jubilee is open year-round and offers many after-school academic/tutoring programs and mentoring programs. Jubilee Family Development Center changes lives. Each day, Jubilee’s staff and volunteers serve as teachers and role models to hundreds of children and young adults who come to Jubilee for tutoring, mentoring, and social support services.
