The Delta Project
March 24 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+0
presented by Cole Williams and Joel van Kuiken
“How do you become something that you cannot see? ”
From this simple question, The Delta Project was born. The Delta Project exists to break the generational cycle of incarceration by reconnecting youth of color and their families to community relationships through mentorship, coaching and storytelling.
The founders of this venture will share their stories and discuss the personal and community side of how to bring future change into communities, helping others find truer patterns and ways of growing into them.
Cole Williams is a motivational speaker, fatherhood consultant, facilitator, and the CEO and Founder of “Son To A Father” and “Cole Speaks,” programs that work to empower and restore relationships between boys and men of color. Most importantly, Cole is a father to seven sons. Cole serves as a teacher inside the Kent County Juvenile Detention Center where he provides life-skills training for adolescent male residents.
Joel van Kuiken (a regular lighthouse attendee) served with Cole on a non profit board; they developed a friendship that led to discussions about media, communications, and how to orchestrate impact with people who need guidance to find their way. Joel’s experience in communications, public relations, digital media and design thinking helps channel ideas into reality. His passion for the Delta Project helps drive the vision into the future.
