Please see some of our commonly asked questions below. If you have any additional questions, we'd love to set up a time to speak!
Q: What happens during a client intake and why are they necessary?
A: JTB conducts intakes with all new clients. We do this as a way of getting to know our clients prior to meeting them in person. This allows us to assess clients’ needs and goals and go over any unanswered questions.
Q: Do you provide transportation to and from events?
A: JTB does not provide transportation to and from events. We encourage clients to use Uber and Lyft, and would be happy to assist with skills needed to obtain a ride to and from events.
Q: How do clients pay for events?
A: JTB clients can pay for events through multiple channels. We accept payments via Quickbooks (a simple process that allows you to pay with a credit card) and Venmo. JTB also accepts DDD funding. If you have a budget with the state of NJ, please ask your support coordinator to reach out to us directly.
Q: Are you a DDD vendor?
A: Yes, we are!
Q: What is your main demographic of clients?
A: Majority of JTB clients are young adults between the ages of 18-35. Many of our clients are actively looking for meaningful social experiences, and a place to meet peers that they can hang out with at JTB events, and form long term friendships with over time.

A: Most of JTB’s events take place in Bergen County, NJ. Some of our specialty events happen around Bergen County.
