“…to the weak I became weak, in order to win the weak. I have become all things to all people, so that I may by all means save some.”
We are a faith-based organization that looks to connect all parts of the community through education and service. We develop programs leadership initiatives that fulfill the needs of the youth community and the people who support them. Our goal is to bridge…
What We Do
At SOOUL, we look to develop holistic programming that bridges local communities to regional and global opportunities. Our intent is to grow strong relationships within families, businesses, and municipal entities in order to create a sustainable societal network. SOOUL provides youth consulting services which work alongside public school districts, colleges, and professional organizations to enhance leadership and career initiatives for young people and their families. We look to be a lighthouse for all those seeking guidance in a sometimes stormy trial of life.
How We Serve
We look to serve in whatever manner a community may need us to. We encourage, sustain, motivate, and push forward the people that cannot see a future beyond their immediate grasp.
We serve everyone that comes through the doors of SOOUL so that they may become leaders in whatever role they wish to play in life. We urge young people to discover their purpose through education, career opportunities, and building strong family ties.
A variety of programs will be introduced to maximize efficiency and impact. Focal points include 21st century skills, health, relationships, financial literacy, social service, and the arts.
“Students learn from their mentors about responsibility, respect, leadership, and the importance of giving back to their community. The SOOUL Foundation is a haven where students grow and gain self-worth.”

“MVP is an exemplary program. It focuses on student interests, academic talents, and developing leaders. Schools and parents should discover a way to bring MVP to their communities. It will change lives.”

“I could go on for days about how effective this program will be. I was raised in a program similar to this one, and I owe it a large deal of credit for making me who I am today. I can still recite the Ten Commandments from the program––and I was in the 10th grade the last time I was there. I believe this program will have an impact on every young person that travels through it.”
– BRYAN WHITE, Adjunct Professor, Morehouse College
“I believe the mentorship, leadership, and relationship-building components of this development program will impact students in the classroom and follow them into their homes and communities. Students will have the opportunity to focus on a variety of career choices while learning to become the leaders of tomorrow. While classroom teachers are focusing mainly on the standards to be achieved for accreditation and graduation, SOOUL will impart, impact, and nurture each participant with the practical knowledge and wisdom needed to become a successful student and a good citizen by focusing on service, responsibility, and commitment.”
