Fresh Mix Podcast – Episode 16: Jennifer Perez of Orlando and Silvana Roncal of Miami Defied the Odds Together Through LEAP’s Mentorship Program

 In Fresh Mix, Network Episodes

A Mix of Florida’s Freshest Personalities

As we’ve noted many times on the show, mentorship can be helpful and fulfilling for both a mentor and mentee. Today’s guests are the perfect example of this dynamic relationship. Silvana Roncal mentored Jennifer Perez through a nonprofit organization called LEAP, which stands for Ladies Empowerment and Action Program. The organization places businesswomen in the Homestead Correctional Institution to mentor incarcerated women. They teach them entrepreneurial and life skills to prepare them for re-entering into society. Silvana and Jennifer share their mentorship journey with Gerard.  They also explain the tough realities of transitioning from prison life to civilian life. Listen in and learn something new today.
