A Couple Who Shares Their Love Through Volunteering

Erika Jones-Purvis is an event planner and founder of A Social Life, a party planning and event design company specializing in intimate gatherings. Keith Purvis is a writer, director, and producer of film, as well as founder of The Junction Group LLC., a new media production company.

Together, this power couple spend their time giving back to the community by supporting youth mentoring groups, such as Polished Pebbles. Erika has been a volunteer mentor with our girls in Polished Pebbles Girls Mentoring Program since our beginning days.  She specializes in teaching our girls about social etiquette, including basic table settings, eating out a new restaurants, and how to create a wonderful social ambiance in your own home and community.   Here’s some pictures of Erika at work.

Keith has volunteered with us during our Polished Pebbles Men’s Month festivities serving on open forum panels with our girls giving them opportunities to interact with positive male role models.  And, he’s also assisted with producing some of our videos.  Such as this one,


Keith just directed and produced a documentary on unfair housing practices in Chicago and Martin Luther King participation in the Chicago Freedom Movement for the MLK Fair Housing Exhibit Center on the Westside of Chicago.  Currently, Keith is in preproduction for his first feature film Travis & Tabitha. When circumstances turn two lost people into roommates, their makeshift relationship forces them to make profound decisions on what they want to do with the rest of their life.  The film is being made in Chicago starting in May of 2014. Like the Travis and Tabitha page ( for updates. 

I just wanted to honor Keith and Erika’s dedication to each other, and volunteering by using their skills sets to support youth mentoring! As we always want to emphasize there’s so many ways each of us can support the growth of youth mentoring efforts! For more information about Erika & Keith’s company’s click on their logos below:
