OUR STORY In 2018, on International Womens Day, Lauri Levenfeld and Adrienne Arieff launched Project Mentor after realizing there was a deficiency in effective mentoring. We target the most vulnerable - serving and empowering women experiencing homelessness and mental health issues.We’ve made it our business to talk with dynamic women around the country and ask the tough questions —about their struggles, successes, and family life.

Project Mentor brings women together who need mentorship and support. We provide participants access to networks, resources and knowledge to empower them to reach their full potential. Over the past two years, more than 500 women have participated in Project Mentor.


During the early 2000’s Adrienne worked on educational initiatives and public relations in London at Burberry and UNICEF in NYC. Most recently she was founder and CEO of Arieff Communications and SVP at OutCast navigating the ever-changing world of communications, branding, partnerships and digital marketing.

She is an integrated marketer who likes to lead, build and transform brands. Clients have included: adidas, amazon, Burberry, Facebook, Lexus, method and Equinox Fitness. She currently consults for The AEA Advisory she founded in 2015 and Project Mentor she co-founded in 2018. From a young age she has volunteered/or advised several non-profits, Venture Capital Firms, and accelerator groups including: UpFront Ventures, Highway 1, Universal Giving, Project Glimmer, Room To Read, Accel Foods, Enterprise for High School Students, Glide Memorial, Accountability Counsel, #glam4good, Dress For Success and The Roberts Enterprise Development Fund.


Lauri’s passion is woven into her photography and storytelling. Since graduating from USC’s Film School, her camera has captured Hillary Clinton, Nelson Mandela, Robert Redford, Uma Thurman, Tom & Rita Hanks, Mark Zuckerberg, and Donna Karan to name a few.

Inspired by the talent she photographs, Lauri founded The Project for Women in 2014 and The Project for Girls in 2016 both emphasizing the influence and power of girls and women through her distinctive lens.
