Crown Jewel Club
Crown Jewel Club provides a positive environment for at-risk girls that fosters improved self-esteem and self-confidence. Through the core program, Crown Jewel Club teaches at-risk girls how to make introductions, basic manners, how to write thank you notes, grooming and personal hygiene, correct place settings, and proper table etiquette. SIMB members have a lot of fun working with the girls as volunteers in the classroom. SIMB also provides a financial scholarship to CJC graduates and a donation yearly to help cover the cost of putting on the program.
Crown Jewel Club gives at-risk girls a sense of belonging and surrounds them with people who care. Girls also learn the value of giving, the importance of education, family and friendships. Crown Jewel Club uses core values to give at-risk girls a greater sense of self-worth as well as self-respect and respect for others.
