Educational, Motivate, and Inspire! A story of Courage to Move On...Book our Founder!
In 2013 Ms. Brinkley White decided to become one of several parents choosing to make a difference in the lives of youth at New Castle County Detention Center and Ferris School for Boys & Girls. Ms. Mozi from Delaware Center for Justice asked her to become a part of their Gun Violence Prevention class. After much consideration, she shared Brandon's life's journey, his set-backs and eventually a new-found career in barbering trade that brought him joy.
Brandon's dream now live on through others who share the passion and excitement of pursuing their goals.
Ms. Brinkley-White continue to participate in several anti-violence programs and trainings. She and her daughter Courtney are regular participants at Urban Promise and Camp Amen engaging students.
