Mentors needed by ex-teacher to help young women reach their potential
COULD you help a young woman from Sydney turn her life around?
A charity set up by a former high school teacher needs mentors. Jessica Brown, 48, from Balgowlah started the charity 14 years ago after working as a music teacher in Bankstown. Mrs Brown, who grew up in Forestville, realised many of her students were not reaching their potential in the classroom.
Jess Brown credits her ‘passion for helping others’ as the driving force behind her inspiring career.
Jess is the latest to be featured in our ‘Game Changing Women’ series. We check in with her for an update on the foundation, her new focuses with evolving the SISTER2sister initiative and what kind of legacy she hopes the organisation will leave.
It’s the program that proves sometimes it only takes one positive role model to turn a life around.
Last month, the award winning -Life Changing Experiences Foundation’ (LCEF), that manages -The SISTER2sister’ mentoring program for -at risk teens’, has extended their reach into Melbourne by launching the -No Limits for Girls’ program.
