In It Together!
“I had the honor and privilege of working with Louis and his team in their production of a curriculum for a parent learning academy called, “In It Together!” This seven module curriculum was designed to promote equity in the Federal Way Public School District and improve educational outcomes for marginalized students of color. The great work of this team led to immediate buy in from parents of color in the community.”
A Future Worth Living For
“I see my future as something worth living for since suicide isn’t much of an idea to me as it was before. Your youth development groups have taught me to look around and see what’s right in front of me. I know I have a lot to be thankful for now that I have met Mr. Guiden.”
Supporting Community Teachers
“I really appreciate having tips and real ways to both understand my students perspectives and how to support them in an effective way.”
Giving Youth a New Perspective
“I now understand my problems are not my parents fault but the cycle of what’s really going on in life. I want to say that I really appreciate your realness because in high school, this language you speak is never exposed or allowed. We learn academics but we do not have support with dealing with things that effect our daily lives Thank You Mr. Louis.”
Providing Real Hope For Change
“I just want to say thank you because these lessons made me see who I am and why. I’m glad to see someone who was where I am right now in my life. It reassures me that things are going to work in my life, the same way it was able to happen for you. You are a blessing to me.”
Inspiration To Move Forward
“I see a brighter future for myself because of this time I had to spend with you. I have become a little less concealed in the darkness of my past and I am letting go of the root problems that are always holding me back. Thank You Mr. Louis.”
Effective & Dedicated Community Partner
“I think you are a great motivational speaker for students, so that they may be encouraged to help those less-fortunate. As always, thanks so much for doing all that you do for our communities. We really appreciate all your efforts and are so grateful to have a close partnership with you!”
