JCCO is an IRS 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt charity, so all contributions go toward the scholarship fund. Jackson Counties Community Outreach has a goal to provide college scholarships and technical school scholarships to graduates of the following schools: Jackson County Comprehensive High School, East Jackson Comprehensive High School, Jefferson High School and Commerce High School in Jackson County GA.

We hope that everyone understands the benefits of supporting further education in their county.

The more support received from volunteers and businesses; the more help JCCO can give to local high school seniors to help them onto the next phase of their education.  The goal is to enhance educational opportunities for youth who will return to or stay in the community to improve the workforce with highly skilled and educated workers and leaders.
