This week marked the start of our new mentoring partnership with JP Morgan Chase. Thirty members of SLJ's Young Women's Association walked to the nearby JPMC building in Metrotech Center on Thursday evening, where they convened with 30 female volunteers who work in a wide variety of departments at the bank. The mentors and mentees worked together to define their goals for the year, which included: inspire others, gain knowledge on different topics, build communication skills, and empower young women. They came away enthusiastic about the connections they made and looking forward to next month's meeting.
SLJ's Young Men's Initiative will have their turn next week, when they will meet with their mentors for the first time, too!
