Working Together to Build a Brighter Future

The Jewett Center for Community Partnerships (JCCP) is the home of community engagement at Wesleyan University. Guided by the principles of mutual respect and collective responsibility, the JCCP focuses on developing and maintaining local partnerships with schools, nonprofit organizations, government agencies and the community at large through the Office of Community Service and Volunteerism, the Center for Prison Education, and WESU 88.1FM. Our work in the Middletown community and beyond is organized around three areas of focus: Sustainability and Environmental Justice, Education and Youth Development, and Reimagining Justice.
