J-Jams will partner with the Philadelphia Senior Center to provide seniors with the opportunity to meet and interact with Jefferson students through music. The aim of the program will be to have student perform along with seniors as a form of both entertainment and relaxation. At its most basic level, the program will involve students playing music (e.g. Piano, guitar, saxophone, singing) for seniors at a designated weekly time slot, which will be advertised to the seniors.   Once our organization is more established, we plan to reach out to other Senior Centers or Homes to provide similar services. This way, more seniors can benefit from this program.
