Who We Are:

 

Set In Stone Foundation, Inc. mentoring program is a non-profit organization founded in Jacksonville, FL.  Being an educator in the public school system, I feel that many of our young ladies are being misguided by peer pressure and negative outside influences. The adverse effect of this is they began to perform low academically, have attendance issues, and develop behavior problems. The need for a positive mentoring program is essential in bridging the gap between home, school and community. By instilling positive morals and values into our young ladies they learn how to hold themselves in high regard by building character, increasing self-esteem and improving their academic performance. The program was developed for girls who possess potential for leadership and academic achievement. It is designed to help build image and increase self- esteem in girls.

It is our mission to instill high standards for academic success, integrity, leadership and responsible citizenship.
