Jared’s Heart of Success is a great mentoring program. Mrs. Sharmaine provides a loving and supportive environment that teens can gain self esteem and confidence while learning life skills such as financial literacy, STEM learning and avoiding peer pressure related to risky behaviors. The teens learn to love themselves, be supportive to others and give back to community through volunteerism. I can’t say enough of how this program has allowed my daughter to blossom that I have brought three more young ladies to program to improve their self esteem and sense of self.

Jared’s Heart of Success is an incredible nonprofit that does so much to improve the lives of young people. Their outreach is broad and varied. I have had the pleasure of attending a few of their events and have been so impressed with the work being done. A program for tweens and teens that focused on bullying gave the kids practical advise to deal with bullying and peer pressure. Police officers and other community members spoke, but the most memorable part of the program was the sharing of the kids. I was also able to attend another event that showcased the creative efforts of teens. They beautifully expressed the life issues they deal with through art, vocal performances, poetry, and dance. The support and recognition that the kids gain through Jared’s Heart of Success will encourage them to strive to do all that they wish to do in life and take action within their community. Jared’s Heart of Gold is inspiring to all participants and supporters.

As a volunteer, I am excited about the work that Jared's Heart of Sucess is actually doing in the community. Sharmaine's leadership and dedication to violence prevention and Wellness in the community is Amazing. I tell Sharmaine as much as possible for taking life 's lemon and making lemonade. No Mother should feel the pain of losing a child especially to gun violence. Unfortunately, even as of last week a kid was shot at a house party. So.... the work is not done. Let's all support Jared's Heart of sucess and other organizations. We all need each other.

It has been an honor and a provilege to watch this organization collaborate with so many other organizations in the mission of preventing youth violence, educating youth leaders, and implementing real change.

Because of the mentoring and resources Jared’s Heart of Success has provided me, I have been able to become a more confident individual who is able to be a beacon of positive change in my community.

Jarred Hearts of Success is an amazing organization that does a lot in different communities for the youth. My loving Aunt Sharmaine Brown does an amazing job making sure that her nonprofit is the best that it can be. I had the honor of attending one of the events she held in South Carolina and received a lot of great words of encouragement from the motivational speakers that I can now use in my everyday life. Although we lost Jared so tragically with this amazing nonprofit he will always be remembered and loved by his family and friends along with those who support him through this organization in his memory.

My nephews and nieces were visiting and I came across this organization, so my wife and I took them to an event. It was amazing! The kids had a ball, the topics about self esteem was point on; the kids are 7, 8 and 9 years old and I later found out they were getting bullied at school because they are of a mixed race. Mrs Brown had a discussion with the kids about being bullied. After the event my nieces and nephews opened up to me and my about their issues. What a blessing.
