Aaron Turner is a father, grandfather, and mentor to a number of children. Mr.Turner is an entrepreneur and a media personality. Mr. Turner background includes working with kids who have behavior issues, mental illness, substance abuse, and parents who are incarcerated. Mr. Turner personal philosophy is " It takes one moment, one action, one thought to change the world, so why not be that one. Our Next Awesome Speaker Founder/ President Ellery Lundy, Broken Men Foundation discusses issues dealing with men who have had bad relationships. That hurt and pain may have caused them to become stagnant and disconnected with life's situations. Men have a tendency not to communicate. We act out in different fashions sometimes resulting in domestic violence, becoming abusive parents or worse. Men have to be more accepting of knowing they aren't alone in this walk and that it's okay to talk about the past and move forward. So join me in this quest of "How to take Broken Men and make Better Men". While transforming the youth to be productive citizens teaching them the basics of life skills and life lessons. Given them the necessary skills to avoid jail and become our leaders in the future. Raising boys to men and providing support to men within our community who are otherwise destined to be a statistic.
Today is Going to be an Amazing Day For A Better Day Than Yesterday Initiative Program!! We are overjoyed from the amount of Support and Opportunities ! We are looking forward to our future Workshops!
