The Inspirational Self-Sufficiency Training Center (IS2TC), was conceived by Shauneille Smith. As Ms. Smith worked in various sectors within private, federal and state with youth and adults, it became apparent that some had dreams beyond the confines of their neighborhoods; but lacked opportunity and/or knowledge to connect with resources that could help them on the road to sustainability and/or remain ahead of shifting life threats. Ms. Smith saw this as an opportunity to help bridge gaps and it became her goal to promote holistic exposure.
IS2TC desires to be a resource for the community providing ideas for how to spark innovative thinking and efforts, in the lives of our youth, adults and businesses.
Individuals are given the tools to design, plan, and execute inclusive recovery solutions to reduce current and future risk.
Innovation in our community can be as basic as thinking differently or changing a process or procedure to work more effectively.
Innovation empowers employees to change the way they think, and tackle challenges which enables them to deliver great customer service; while assisting the company to stay ahead of evolving threats.
Innovation enables the whole community to work towards the unified outcomes that better position to build a stronger and more resilient community.
