Why we do this.             Success to Significance

Many years ago, our Founders had a dream to become personally better and to achieve the American dream. Today that “American Dream” has grown to seeing their family, friends, business colleagues, community and ultimately the United States transformed by living good values. They believe that people who live good values are more valuable to their family and friends, community and ultimately everyone they come in contact with. 


We have an unstoppable desire to make a difference in our community, investing in our local community is our responsibility as a leader. 

How we do this.

Staten Island, NY is one of the first communities where the John Maxwell Leadership Foundation has launched this full-scale transformative effort in the United States. The goal of Community Transformation Staten Island is to empower leaders to transform their communities. This initiative brings together people from all 8 major streams of influence- business, government, education, health care, faith, sports, and arts and entertainment towards a common goal of learning and living good values.

I AM Empowering was founded in Staten Island, NY with the mission of Empowering Youth, Equipping Future Leaders, and Transforming Communities. They do this by nurturing the leadership and entrepreneurial gifts of 13 to 18-year-olds through partnering with business and community leaders in all 8 major streams of influence. 


At the core of I AM Empowering, we believe in empowering youth to give back to their community, thus the launch of this youth empowered annual Gift of LOVE Toy Drive. With the help of local businesses and community leaders, this toy drive has given out thousands of toys to local charities and/or families who are less fortunate while allowing the youth of IAE to practice their leadership skills.


Giving the gift of LOVE and Hope to an innocent heart.
