Jane Phillips started The Crown Jewel Club 11 years ago for at-risk girls. It is extraordinary how empowering and transformative this program is foryoung girls. Teaching manners and social skills : learning to say please and thank you, looking someone in the eyes, knowing how to properly hold a fork - to name just a few, has changed the livesof these young girls. The two young ladies who joined us for the evening told us how the program had transformed them from shy and quiet , to girls with confidence , self esteem , courage and determination. The following week Laurie MacCaskill and Sue Cameronattended the Graduation Tea . Bravo to Jane and all those who supported this heart warming and inspiring evening.
