Mission & Vision

We hope to enter schools and neighborhoods around the globe teaching children how to tap into the POWER of VOICE; the POWER of SERVICE; and the POWER of LEADERSHIP


THE SPEAK FEED LEAD PROJECT has a goal to change communication through education and preparation. We will empower presentation. 


As populations grow, we are becoming more and more isolated, alone, and confused. Despite information, we are experiencing communication starvation.

Jackie Bailey

Whitney Houston sang, “I believe the children are our future. Teach them well and let them lead the way…”

Her melodious plea is even more relevant now. Almost daily we hear of young people taking their lives; or taking the life of others at their school, or in their neighborhoods.

For many years I’ve been teaching children, youth, and adults how to find their core beliefs; and to discover the experiences that taught them those beliefs. I’ve seen the empowering outcome when a child can barely look me in the eye on the first day of class, to several weeks later telling an inspiring personal story about a value they hold dear.

My goal is to help all persons SPEAK with POWER; FEED others in word and deed, and to LEAD with POSITIVE INFLUENCE.
