JEWELS FOUNDATION MENTORING PROGRAM
The Jewels Foundation Mentor Program is designed to connect mentors in our organization with mentees.
Our mentors works with students to educate and inspire them in reaching their fullest potentials by completing high school; achieve a college education; pursue a professional career; and give back to their communities as leaders capable of affecting change. We are a jem, as we provide a wide array of services (coaching, counsel, educational growth, professional development, feedback, friendship, leadership, role-modeling, tutoring) to all we serve and has sustain success and growth since our inception.
Mentoring provides mentees with promise and untapped abilities with support and guidance about education and career goals. Our program matches students ages 10 - 18 years of age, with pro-social supportive adults as mentors; recruited from diverse fields including organizations, targeted businesses, civic organizations, professional student organizations, and college majors from criminal justice, social work, or related majors. Our goal is to build relationships as well as capacity with the limited budgets we all face.
There are benefits for mentors too – studies show that mentors gain an increased sense of intrinsic personal and professional satisfaction and enhanced leadership, teaching and communications skills.
