The rodeo is a great time for a great cause, historically attracting over 9,000 spectators during the course of the three-day event. From bull riding by professional cowboys to bouncy houses in the Kids’ Zone, there’s fun for the whole family. The JCMF Annual Professional Rodeo is the primary fundraiser for the Jennifer Claire Moore Foundation, a nonprofit organization providing training, funding and support of Peer Helper Programs in Baldwin County. In 20 years our organization has grown to provide annual training for over 100 teachers and counselors, support 50 Peer Helper programs serving pre-k through 12th grade, and present the Annual National Peer Program Conference and Peer Helper Jubilee.
The Jennifer Claire Moore Foundation’s Peer Helper Program model is a certified curriculum based upon teaching communication, coping and problem solving skills in order to equip students with the knowledge and resources to support their peers through daily issues and life obstacles. These Peer Helper Programs empower students to serve as tutors, mentors, mediators and friends to their fellow students, supporting them through academic or personal struggles including bullying prevention, avoiding dropout, leaving destructive relationships, helping new students adjust and much more. This concept is based on the fact
that when young people seek help, validation or guidance, they turn to a peer first and reach out to their parents much later if at all. Therefore, it is our youth that we will continue to empower to support one another because they make the greatest positive impact. To learn more about the Foundation, please visit PeerHelpers.org.
