“The JELF organization helped my family afford college for both me and my brother.  JELF provided an invaluable service to us.  Going to college was made more affordable, and the repayment of the loans was easy to manage once we graduated from school.  JELF was introduced to us at a very important time in our lives, and it has contributed to our success.”

JELF is dedicated to providing students with the means to
fulfill their educational goals.

College is hard enough without the burden of student loan debt.

College is getting more expensive

Income rarely matches the cost.

Average student loan debt is $30K

That's a problem! With student loan debt at an all time high, JELF is here to help!
