ABOUT

Men of Promise Conference exposes urban young men in the to a different way of life through a one-day corporate experience with professionals who listen and help cast vision for their lives.  Our founder, LaMarqué Ward Sr. believes you can’t build what you can’t see.  In essence, we are asking young people to work for something that most of them can’t imagine.  With this conference then entire experience is essential.  From the bus ride to the facility to the young professionals who volunteer to facilitate in small groups.  The way lunch is served and how excited the volunteers are to receive them at the site.  

DREAM BUILDERS UNIVERSITY

LaMarque Ward spent nine years teaching and leading in Job Corps, but over time, he realized that the young people he served needed more than just academic instruction.  They needed life coaching, someone to help them identify their personal goals and dreams so that they could build plans for their success.  That’s when the idea for Dream Builders was born!

LaMarqué founded Dream Builders University in 2009.  His vision was straightforward:  to educate people with relevant life-changing information, to challenge old ideas, and to inspire people in organizations and schools to deliver their highest potential to humanity.

KEY FOUNDERS

Dream Builders University CEO, LaMarque Ward, introduced the VISION for the Men of Promise Conference to Marty Carter, VP of Strategic Development of Prasco Pharmaceutical, and their foundation, and from that conversation, the Men of Promise Conference was founded.
