CMC Presentations

Janet DeMars, the Director of Jaywalker U, was busy last week supporting the local campuses of Colorado Mountain College.  Last Tuesday night, October 28th, she presented the topic of addiction for the Gift of Learning Series at the Carbondale campus.  Janet offered a definition of addiction, theories and models of addiction, the criteria for the DSM-V diagnosis and facilitated a question and answer session afterwards.  On Thursday, October 30th, Janet presented to the Early Alert Task Force at the Spring Valley campus.  This presentation included statistics about college drinking (80% of all college students drink), Motivational Interviewing (MI), and the Stages of Change.  MI is an interviewing tool that will help staff meet students where they are at, and, by learning the Stages of Change, they will have a better sense of a student’s readiness to make a change.

Operations Team Building

Last Friday, the Jaywalker Lodge operations team had the opportunity to step out of the office to work on team building at Colorado Mountain College’s Spring Valley campus high ropes course. Guided by Johann Aberger – a mountaineer, life coach, and adjunct professor, we spent half the day learning about how our team functioned in unfamiliar territory. Johann was quick to identify our strengths and weaknesses as he watched us maneuver through a series of low ropes courses as a group. After a bit of reflection, we were ready to take what we had learned to the high ropes course. Identifying challenges and working towards a common goal as a team, we all successfully navigated the course. It was a fun and challenging day that helped each one of us identify our strengths and weaknesses, and with our new found knowledge we can create an even stronger operations team. Kortney…

JWU Colleges

Jaywalker U collaborates not only with Colorado Mountain College (CMC), but also works closely with Colorado Technical University (CTU) and Grand Canyon University (GCU).  The relationship with CTU and GCU lets Jaywalker U accept students on rolling admissions.  This means that not only do we have students start our program at the beginning of each semester, but we can also have students start our program mid-semester and take online classes through CTU and GCU. Classes at CTU and GCU start on a weekly and monthly basis.  This flexibility allows ours students the opportunity to take classes when they need as well as a variety of different classes.

29 Years

Jaywalker U Program Director, Janet DeMars, celebrated 29 years of sobriety yesterday! Janet has been with Jaywalker U for two years now and has been a tremendous help to the students as well as myself. Along with working individually with the Jaywalker U students, Janet also counsels students at Colorado Mountain College. After moving to Carbondale from Minnesota Janet rekindled her love for the outdoors. She picked up mountain biking and road bike riding the day she got here. Recently, she started racing road bikes across the state of Colorado. Last month she participated in a 100 mile road bike ride and rumor has she will be entering another one next month. Congratulations Janet and thank you for everything you do! Donnie Hagenbart Program Coordinator Jaywalker U
