This privileged program breaks the cycle of incarceration by interviewing, training and paying the women, giving them the skills and confidence needed to live a more productive life when released.
Since its inception, Jelt has become a Certified B Corporation, is active in 1% For The Planet, and has donated thousands of dollars to charities all over the world. Jelt truly uses business as a force for good.
About the Founder/President – After surviving a near-death experience and months in the hospital, Jen Perry knew she wanted to do more with her life. In 2014, she founded Jelt as a social enterprise, with the purpose of creating a product that everyone would need, while promoting and encouraging social change. “I started Jelt Belt as a social enterprise after seeing the impact businesses can have on nonprofit causes,” said Jen Perry, founder of Jelt Belt. “I remembered the elastic rainbow belts I rocked as a kid in the eighties and wanted to provide a functional piece that could hold up anything from skinny jeans to ski pants. I blended my personal experience with my desire to give back to the community and Jelt was born.”
Jelt belt retails for $32,005 and can be purchased at www.jeltbelt.com .
