    What our members say

    My mentor pushed me to go outside
    of my comfort zone. I’m not sure if I
    can even accurately convey the impact
    of her mentoring efforts because it has
    led to opportunities and experiences
    that have forever changed my life.

    - Jenn S.

    My mentor is the wind beneath our
    wings. She has never stopped supporting
    us and sharing her wisdom. When we
    make it, I will consider her a major
    contributor to our success. The WJA and
    its mentorship program help beyond words!

    - Peggy H.

    I truly believe that this is a wonderful
    program and very helpful. I’m excited to
    get my mentee into the workforce and
    for her to achieve success in the jewelry
