The Jamaican Heritage Society is currently putting together a database of mentors in the US that would be available to mentor students grades 7th through 9th (Approx. ages 12-18).
The Jahs Legacy Programme is an multinational initiative that will revolutionize the mentorship arena. While in Legacy, Jamaican students (Legacies) will be paired with one to two mentors in who are working in their desired field. Mentors can be located in the United States, Canada and the U.K. Our mentoring method will foster caring and supportive relationships between Legacies and their mentors, encourage Legacies to develop to their fullest potential and help the Legacies develop his/her own vision for the future.
If you would like to be included in the database of potential mentors, please complete the following online form and a member of our staff will keep you updated on the status of the program.
