Lucas Metropolitan Housing Authority Partners with Jones Leadership Academy to Create New Mentoring Program


 Lucas Metropolitan Housing Authority (LMHA) announces a one-on-one mentoring program in partnership with Jones Leadership Academy (JLA) to provide guidance to their graduating seniors. This pilot partnership is an initiative that will deliver a jumpstart for JLA graduating seniors to gain important resources that will help them as they enter into adulthood, college and professional careers. 


The initiative was started by LMHA. Each student is assigned a LMHA mentor that they will work with through the remaining school year. The mentor/mentee will meet on a monthly basis and engage in specific developmental activities, along with job shadowing at LMHA.


JLA is a high school with a career-tech focus and business-themed curriculum, including marketing, finance and supply chain management. The school offers small class sizes and separate wings for girls and boys.


“We are thrilled with this exciting new partnership, and have had a vision of connecting with the community beyond its residents for awhile now,” said Demetria Simpson, president and chief executive officer, LMHA. “We think that mentoring can change lives, and help children to realize their full potential, while teaching the mentor important life lessons at the same time. These positive relationships are a win-win.”
