Anjulie Ponce: Mentoring for College, Career, and Community Readiness

In 2014, Anjulie Ponce was introduced to the world of mentoring. It was that year her husband, JJ, began volunteering with a new program called Leadership Forward, and through that experience, Anjulie’s trajectory was forever changed. Since 2018 Anjulie has served as executive director at Leadership Forward, connecting local professionals with Dallas ISD high school students through one-on-one mentoring. Through her creative thinking and dedication to building mentoring relationships that last long past high school graduation, Leadership Forward is seeing success, even in a year defined by pandemic.
