Diamonds, the most valuable gems in the world, are mined from raw ore. The ore is crushed, the diamonds extracted, and then a process of cutting, polishing, and arranging takes place. The result is a dazzling display of beauty, as the diamond’s inherent worth is evident for all the world to see!
At Spirit of Excellence, we believe that every person is a diamond possessing tremendous inherent worth. Our goal is to bring out their dazzling potential as we inspire a lifestyle of excellence!
The Mission of Spirit of Excellence
We exist to connect young people with mentors to discover, develop, and activate their potential for a lifestyle of excellence. Through our Entrepreneurial & Personal Improvement programs, events, and mentoring relationships, Spirit of Excellence connects children and young adults from all walks of life—from the urban to the global community—with professionals, teachers, and artists who can help them discover their talents, embrace their creative potential, and develop the confidence and character to become all that they can be.
Mentoring in Life Skills & Excellence
At Spirit of Excellence, we strive to enable young people to enhance their lives, leading by example and letting them know they are not limited to their surroundings or circumstances—they can be resourceful—they can achieve that dream!
We work with artists and professionals, locally and globally, to help young people discover their unique, God-given creativity and develop mastery and leadership skills in a creative, safe, confidence-building environment.
Spirit of Excellence’s programs bring in young people from all ethnic, economic, and educational backgrounds. Sponsorship and scholarship programs enable students from underprivileged areas to participate fully. At SOE, we are all on the same team!
Within Windsor’s urban community, we have provided mentoring in the creative arts (including writing, dance, acting, music, drumming, flags, and more) and in personal and professional skills (including image & poise, communication & public speaking, hygiene, cosmetology, computer skills, and working with media) for 10 years!
Far more than just another after-school program, we train students in the building blocks of life!
