The annual ORT-JUMP Graduation Reception took place on Tuesday 1 July 2014 at The Arts Depot. It was attended by a record number of 250 students, mentors, parents and teachers who celebrated the achievement of all those who took part in the programme.
The highlight of the evening was the guest speaker, former Dragons Den investor and serial entrepreneur James Caan. James spoke about the wonderful work that ORT-JUMP is doing and the importance of mentoring for young people and throughout their lives. “One bit of advice I would give”, he said “is to never think that once you have a job you have arrived. To this day, I still am mentored by 4 different individuals. Although I have been relatively successful in business there is still a lot I don’t know and we should never stop the learning process through mentoring”.
