Whose involved

TJEF is a College of Mentors around the world with a passion for turning dreams into reality.  Planting ideas, imagining unorthodox relationships, nurturing a passion to help John Ernest Fellows, who reflect a diversity and complexity of human backgrounds and come from most corners of the globe, achieve their dreams. 


We form a treillage, a trellis of trusting friends who have watched the Foundation - in a sense - one-by-one - help John Ernest Fellows pave roads of growth, professionally, intellectually, personally. Through focusing on individuals we set on a multiplier ripple effect.
