For the past 4 years I have been a part of Rochester Jewels. My time in Jewels has empowered me to stand strong in who I am, equipped me with information and network abilities to make great life choices while educating me to put myself and my community 1st. My mentor, Ms. Yvette Conyer is amazing, so caring. She always fined unique ways to incorporate the lessons and help us with the application. Thank you Rochester Jewels Inc.


Rochester Jewels have been a part of my life for over 4 years now, and during these years I have learned to become a striving and confident young lady. While in this program we have a mission statement that emphasized three big E’s that are very powerful... Educate, Equip & Empower!  One of the most amazing benefits is being a part of a sisterhood. Thanks to Rochester Jewels, I truly believe and walk in the essence of being one of God's precious Jewels!

Parent testimony

Rochester Jewels Inc. is an amazing organization. Believing in each and every girl, allowing them to explore their gifts and talents while preparing them for the real world. My daughter's have been apart of the sisterhood for 3 years. They have learned the importance of giving back to the community, banking, how to catch a bus, as well as entrepreneur skills. All while having fun. I think that all young girls should experience being a Jewel. They say "It takes a village to raise a child". Well I'm glad that Rochester Jewels is apart of my village.
