in San Juan. Jasmine is currently a Communications major at
Saddleback College who will be attending the University of San
Marcos in the fall.
Jasmine is interning with the Capistrano Common Sense (CCS), assisting with everything from website design to writing and photography.
The Next Generation (“NG”) grew out of Jasmine’s interest in contributing to her community. She moved to San Juan at the age of thirteen and is proud to call our
historic town home. She is focused on finding ways to improve her hometown and is fortunate to have the help of friends, fellow students and the CCS in accomplishing that goal. The Next Generation is open to youths in San Juan who are interested in pursuing volunteer service to the community.
“If one person can make a difference, then bringing many people together can have a positive impact on our town. It’s time to stand on truth and principles while bringing all parts of our community together,” said Jasmine of her vision in founding the youth group.
“Our goal is to help our members develop leadership skills while contributing to the community, one step at a time. Our motto is ‘a hand up not a handout; it starts with us’.”
The Next Generation’s first volunteer effort is “Clean Up San Juan”. Volunteers will meet at Historic Town Center Park in downtown San Juan Capistrano on April 13th at 9 a.m. to spend an hour cleaning up litter in an effort to beautify the downtown area. All volunteers are welcome to join in making new friends, meeting the retailers and spreading the message to “Keep San Juan Clean!” For more information, visit the CCS website at: www.ccsense.com; click on the “Events” tab.
