The Duck Race proceeds are supporting 4 local charities this year, J Bar J is one of our 2021 beneficiaries!

Many students today are not prepared to take on the challenges of adulthood. Getting the life and work-ready skills to take into the workforce is what the Vocational Training Program at J Bar J does for our area youth. This training gives them the confidence they need to live a productive and healthy lifestyle in the future.
