JumpStart’s Encore Mentoring Program matches individuals (age 50+) who want to give back to their community with entrepreneurs in search of advice to grow their businesses. The program is for all of Cleveland, but values the diversity of human resources and strives for 90% of its mentors to be African American, Latinx or female.
