Leadership Team

Meet our Board and Staff

Our team members are selected from our business financial partners. They graciously choose to invest their time and talents, which are evident through leading organizations that embody integrity, compassion, transparency, and a determination to invest in the lives within their reach. They are the fuel, the engine, and every vital piece of what guides our mentoring mission.

Matthew Marcum



Matthew has been married to his wife and friend Ashley for 16 years. Their marriage and family of six children is their main mission, and extends into the community. Matthew spent 15 years as a registered nurse in hospice care prior to transitioning to develop and direct the mentoring program. From a background of relational isolation and struggle himself, Matthew's heart is made full as he introduces mentors that champion impact in the lives of the students and families they serve. Relationships are everything... ​

Ashley Marcum

Board Member


Dancer, musician, wife and mother, teacher, and choreographer. She works with all ages, mostly through dance, on finding grace in ones motion, both inward and outward. We have the most positive impact when we carry the most positive impression; not just of us but in everyone and everything we come in contact with every day. Jesus' love is the fuel to our soul. Ashley's hope is to live that in every way the Lord place before her.
