During the week of July 26th to August 2, The Hal and Barbara Jones Foundation completed its first annual Student Mentoring Program, a subset of the annual "A New You" women's retreat at Brigham Young University Hawaii. After 12 years of the "A New You" retreat, director Barbara Barrington Jones organized a similar program for BYUH students and community members geared toward younger interests.

Barbara Barrington Jones [pictured below] is a former professional ballet dancer, fashion designer, businesswoman, author, speaker, and image consultant.  She explains that both her women's program and student mentoring program are the fulfillment of a dream to create a camp "where women could come and feel better about themselves" and to find "more of the balance in life."
