Britanie Olvera Austin TexasNearly 90 men walked across the graduation stage this past Friday … one of whom had been released from prison barely 24 hours earlier, but who returned to deliver his business pitch and walk across the graduation stage!

The celebration was joined by the largest crowd in PEP’s history: nearly 70 executive volunteers who had judged the Business Plan Competition that morning, another 50 volunteers who joined us for the graduation ceremony as well as nearly 300 family members. Together, we laughed, we cried, we gave thanks and we stood in awe of the tremendous transformation within the lives of Class “Noble Nineteen.”

One PEP Board Member, Britanie Olvera, summed it up best:

THANK YOU!!! Or Thank God—for putting this program into existence.. it’s such a delight!! I just am sorry I did not get to attend more events this class. Building a business if fine – but building new lives with people is way more important!  PEP is the best ‘environmentally friendly, heart impacting, good for your engine (mind) and carburetor (soul) on the planet’!  It’s  HI OCTANE and I love getting my tanks full of PEP…

Britanie Olvera Austin TexasHaving engaged with PEP the first time in 2008, I find myself not only advocating PEP, but embracing the PEP wings and philosophy: “Changing the Future by Reconciling the Past”. This phrase has meaning and value far exceeding ink on paper. I am passionately involved with PEP because I see it not only giving second chances, but renewing families, re igniting “fatherhood”, but also changing hearts on both sides of the prison wall. I give to PEP my time; my money and I have had the pleasure of hiring PEP graduates into my business. The residual result is an infectious change that spreads into communities; extended families and businesses, resulting in the best ROI I have encountered.

You can look at the tax base return to the taxpayer on many levels, the numbers, hands down tell the successful story of PEP and what it’s accomplishing, but when you look at the changed lives, saved souls and mended hearts, you see the true success of PEP. This unquestionably has a reverberating and lasting effect on our local and regional community, of which the full residual effect, monetarily and socially are difficult to capture in a financial statement. I have seen nothing else like it and I’m convinced it is a revolution. AMAZING WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE EMPOWER PEOPLE

Graciously,
