As the CEO/Founder of God's Hands & Feet Global Ministry, I've often witnessed non-profit programs that initially begin with the best of intentions and great fervor only to quickly start and burn out with little or no results left in their wake, especially as it pertains to the youth in the community and their education.

Professional with expertise in this field & I've collaborated with Dr. Yolanda Watson Spiva as she sought to reachout to the youth in community and provided resource and referral information in regard to youth who would benefit from interaction with Project Grad.
