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


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.


Model - Our Structure is on and off the site-based mentoring organization. The program will use the game of chess as a tool for strategic and creative thinking, book reading to stretch our minds and grow and exposure tours designed to get outside of the box. We believe that when we see better, we do better. We will develop community partners to accomplish this mission. We are an LLC, Limited Liability Company with an extended non-profit focus. We are partnered with Non-Profit organizations on this mission. 

Objective - We will meet weekly virtually or in-person to transform minds and create positive road maps and blueprints to a better version of yourself. We will identify and create paths of success for all areas to thrive: military, trade schools, higher education, jobs, and entrepreneurship opportunities. We will establish short term and long-term goals for each person. We will develop the “WHY and create the “HOW”. The program was founded by Shawn Carrington in 2017 with over 20 years of experience in mentoring and leadership. He has coordinated and conducted numerous events for more than 5,000 children and counting since its inception and serves youth nationally with a goal to one day mentor internationally as well.
