Stanley Bronstein Interviews Jill Gurr


Jill graduated from Boston University with a Bachelors degree in Broadcasting and Film. She worked for 25 years in the film industry as a Script Supervisor and a Screenwriter on international productions with famous actors and directors. Jill founded a nonprofit called Create Now in 1996 and serves as its Executive Director. Create Now serves vulnerable children ages 2-21 with therapeutic programs in literary arts, visual arts, performing arts, such as theatre and dance, and music arts like guitar and music recording & production. Kids who have been abused, neglected, homeless, incarcerated and dealing with other challenges learn to express themselves in a positive manner versus the destructive ways that they have in the past.

She’s also published a book, Mentor Youth Now: A Guidebook For Transforming Young Lives, which covers all aspects of mentoring, from the basics, to setting boundaries, teaching life skills and how to end a mentoring relationship.
