The Joint Endeavor for Women in Education and Leadership program (JEWEL) will promote education as a resource for empowerment and leadership by providing improved access to resources that address barriers disproportionately faced by women. The program focuses on academic success, leadership development and access to resources.
The JEWEL program is made possible through a generous gift from Julie Fasone Holder and John Holder to establish the mentorship and scholarship program for North Central Michigan College students.
