The MJCCA is open – continue to work out with us virtually on the MJCCA Fitness Facebook page or in person! See the our Group Exercise Classes at atlantajcc.org/groupexerciseschedule and learn about new safety measures and policies at atlantajcc.org/reopen!

We are also excited to share with you a free option to help keep you active and working out at home. From Les Mills™, this platform offers 95 free workouts across eight categories. It won’t automatically collect your data, and it will remain available as long as the disruption from Coronavirus continues. We hope you also enjoy this additional way to keep your workouts going!

The MJCCA’s Inclusion Program strives to provide the necessary accommodations and flexibility for youth who require additional support so they may access the transformative opportunities available at the MJCCA. Our Inclusion Team collaborates with parents, educators, and staff to determine if successful program placement is possible. These youth and their families are then supported by our Inclusion Team through program accommodations and may also receive individualized assistance. Click here for more information.
