Jeffrey Whittingham wants to bring change to Philadelphia by mentoring inner-city kids

Jeffrey Whittingham’s goal is to bring healing to the Philadelphia community by helping their growth, giving them love and strengthening their strengths.

Whittingham is providing a mentorship program for inner city kids in Philadelphia and will teach them various skills that can help them throughout life. One of his goals is to help kids maintain their emotions and learn a protective skill by teaching them Jiu Jitsu. The program is open to kids from 11-18 and is available to those that can make it to Whittingham’s meeting spot. More information on the program can be found on Whittingham’s Instagram page (@_jeffstruth).
