Review for Crown Jewel Club, El Segundo, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Crown Jewel Club is in so many ways such a simple program. A bunch of really neat caring people coming together to brighten and enhance the lives of 5th grade at-risk girls. Their methods seem so obvious to those of us who came from a more middle class background. Imagine a group of young girls getting so much out of a lesson on meeting new people, or how to set a table and use a knife & fork, or how to dream and make good choices not based on now, but on what you want for yourself in the future.

That is what Crown Jewel Club does and until you have experienced it for yourself, in the classroom, you can't imagine the difference it makes in their lives.

I'm so happy to say I have never regretted supporting this group financially or with my time, and believe me, when I was first told about CJC I didn't understand how at-risk girls could benefit from "a tea!" it is so much more than a tea!

Would you volunteer for this group again?
