Eight Million Stories provides disconnected youth (16-18 years of age) an opportunity to complete their education by way of getting a GED and provides them with occupational skills training where they leave with certifications in food-handling, customer service and warehouse fork-lift operation. Lastly, youth gain access to services to address their emotional and behavioral health needs.

MARVIN | "I am Ruthless for Systemic Change. I'm driven to disrupt systems that are intended to place limitations on the potential of our most vulnerable youth. I strive to use my platform and level of influence to help change the narrative for what is possible for at-risk youth, specifically young boys of color impacted by the juvenile justice system.”
