Juan R. Butler,Jr.

Director of  Youth Affairs

Juan R. Butler, Jr. holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice from University of Maryland Eastern Shore; and I am currently in pursuit of a Master of  Divinity degree from Garrett Evangelical Theological Seminary. I’m a native of  Washington, DC and currently living in Chicago, IL as an educator. I believe in adopting a holistic approach toward mentorship. My experience in mentoring has shown me that in the mentor/mentee relationship there is more to it than imparting and developing skills within the youth. For optimal results, the family unit, also, must be impacted with resources to programs and systematic approaches to growth and development in order for the youth and the family alike to thrive. I come well versed and equipped in building healthy sustainable relationships and developing tailored teaching modalities that promote and process youth toward a successful future.
