All Hands In


We focus on transforming inward thinking before trying to change outward behavior. We become what we think about. Change your thoughts you change your life! We will use Leadership Principles, Books, Chess, and exposure tours to experience life differently. We work with youth of all ages, focusing on the ages 13-18, and adults. Mentoring is for everyone at different stages.

Our Mission & Vision

A world of individuals, families, and communities transforming their lives with specific goals and action plans of empowerment. The key is taking action!!!

To empower both adults and teens using innovative leadership development, entrepreneurship creativity, and mentorship of each other. (Proverbs 27:17 as iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another). We will create growth plans, identify SMART goals, and create action steps for accountability. A personal development plan will be established. In this fast-paced, ever-changing environment, 2 Steps mentoring offers unique and specialized support for our youth today.

Our Philosophy

Our organization believes that our youth can develop skills and plan out their lives with the right influence in their ear. We will focus on two steps, WHAT to do and HOW to do it!

Our program will focus on HOW to accomplish goals. Two Steps Mentoring believes that our youth need direction, discipline, and accountability with the constant presence of a caring adult.

We will conduct both formal and informal sessions designed to build a young person’s life, self-esteem,

strengthens, relationships, peers and adults, academic performance, attendance, and helps combat school drop-out.

We will utilize partnerships with the military and other organizations ready to accomplish this task. We will strive to become and remain the main influencers in a young person’s life. Between the ages of 16-25, we believe what a person does or does not do will affect their life. We will influence that journey the best way we can.

Our mentoring model offers a hybrid approach to leadership development that draws on the proven methods of chess, reading books, and community partners. Effective communication is key to becoming a successful leader, and we teach you how to use all available methods to achieve your goals. Our experienced mentors will work closely with you to develop your skills and support you every step of the way.


As a leader and mentor, my main objective is to help individuals and businesses reach their full potential. Through positive road maps, relationship building, and a clear sense of purpose, I guide my clients to make effective decisions and manage those decisions for a successful outcome. Check out my projects below to see how I help people create a growth mindset and achieve their goals.
