Making Connections. Empowering Youth. More about us »
Being a mentor is a hugely gratifying and rewarding experience. It’s a rare opportunity to build a relationship with someone outside of your normal circle of friends and colleagues, introducing you to a whole different side of the Jackson community…I highly recommend becoming a mentor to anyone interested in getting more involved in our community and making a huge impact on the life of a young person.
— Carolyn Reeve, mentor since 2008
