Description: JeffMentors pairs students from Jefferson's health professions schools with identified at-risk youth from the Honickman Learning Center and Comcast Technology Labs located in North Philadelphia. Striving to influence these children positively, JeffMentors seeks to provide leadership, guidance and support through mentoring. We lead after school workshops at the Honickman Learning Center, supervise field trips to the Franklin Institute and hold Career Days here at Jefferson to educate the youth on a potential path in medicine.
