Dora Jones, Executive Director, Mentoring Young Adults
Dora left Minnesota to pursue a career in Arizona. After returning, she encountered a young lady on the street, carrying her belongings and crying. She took that young lady under her wing and mentored her into an education program and then on to college. That was the day MYA opened its doors to mentoring young adults and teaching them the tools necessary for digging themselves out of poverty. The rest as they say is “history”.
Dora made a commitment nine years ago to address the poverty and economics challenges that exist in communities of color. In her book “Divided Souls”, Dora speaks of the challenges she faced growing up in St. Paul, MN.
