Arts & Education in the Marshall Islands

You should know that when you left, you left behind a great feeling of satisfaction and peace within all of us. We are very grateful for the time you dedicated to us and we look forward to next year. – Director, Marshall Islands Youth Agency

Jodrikdrik nan Jodrikdrik ilo Ejmour

Jodrikdrik nan Jodrikdrik ilo Ejmour (JNJIE) is a youth social service organization located in Majuro, Marshall Islands dedicated to addressing issues faced by the youth of that island nation. For over 25 years I have trained, directed, traveled and performed with JNJIE. We devised and staged a large number of plays; each lasting anywhere from 8-40 minutes in length. We performed on many islands throughout the nation and conducted trainings on several of them.
