Hi - thanks for checking out our site. Please find below some basic info. about JAM Mag!!
To show how the Christian faith is culturally relevant to young people in the UK.
We aim to have a wide range of content material so that there's at least something for most people in the mag. We cover sports, music, films, dance, fun stuff, quizzes, features & editorials. Interviews & Real Life Stories feature heavily. Details of the current mags & previous issues can be found on the relevant pages of this site.
Each mag has a big 'theme' running through it. So every article is linked to theme BUT if somebody was to pick the mag up & only read one article it would make sense on it's own. There are enough articles & features in each issue to enable the mag to be used as a group activity or discussion starter for the term.
Reader age range:-
It's difficult to be too precise on the age range as every young person is different - although we suggest the age range is 11 to 17. We write the mag as though it's written for the top end of the age range...
Frequency & print dates:-
There are three issues a year to coincide with school or college terms – mags are printed in early Jan, May and Sept……
There are loads of different ways the mag can be of interest or use....including youth cafes, clubs, schools work etc - please contact us for more info.
We sell direct! There are pricing structures for both the current mag & back copies. More info is available on the purchase page.
