Stanley's Mission

To help inspire others with similar backgrounds as myself to excel beyond what society and life circumstances have set to be the norm. 

To provide mentoring and educational counseling to individuals returning from incarceration and individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds so that they may position themselves to start building their career as opposed to obtaining temporary employment.
