The 25-year-old midfielder was helping the Club fulfil its commitments to Premier League community initiative Creating Chances, through which the Haringey Citizens Advice Bureau had won the opportunity of a player visit.
In their aim to attract more of the Borough’s young people to the bureau for advice on matters ranging from employment to family planning, JJ gave a talk to guests on lifestyles, discipline, and how he has reached the top of his profession.
He said: “It’s very important as players that we give something back to the young people who perhaps look up to us.
“I was able to get across the message about the importance of staying out of trouble and listening to the people closest to you, like your family.
“It’s good to talk to normal young people about everyday matters and I hope they can take something away from the day.”
As part of the Creating Chances initiative, Haringey CAB will also receive a donation of £2,000 on top of Jermaine’s visit.
Jermaine Jenas took part in a Question and Answer session with some of Haringey's young people at Tottenham Town Hall on Tuesday.
