The inspiration for Inspired Heart Youth Empowerment grew out of a shared passion for community and a desire to give back. Former colleagues - Dereck Purnell, Darretta Whitfield, Andrea Pettway, Tredrick Jackson and Janice ReShae - felt compelled to pay forward the successes they experienced in their own careers and decided to achieve this through mentorship and educational opportunities for young people in Atlanta. After much thought and planning, 'Inspired Heart Youth Empowerment, Inc.' was formed in 2017.
