To cultivate the seeds of leadership and entrepreneurship in today's youth in order to prepare them to become global trailblazers.
Who We Are
The ExCEL Youth Mentoring Institute™, a division of Sound of Nations, a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, is a youth-based mentoring program providing mentorship opportunities and educational resources to develop creativity, interpersonal skills, leadership, and entrepreneurial mindsets. Our holistic approach to youth development provides educational opportunities for both children and parents to learn and grow together while also, developing relationships with a community of like-minded supporters. Our mission is to empower our youth to become global trailblazers by equipping families with the resources and support to run a business, lead a cause and impact the world.
ExCEL began in 2014 in Prince George's County, Maryland, as the brainchild of teenpreneur/momager team, Gabrielle Jordan and Marcella Mollon-Williams. Based on their desire to expose young people to the possibility of entrepreneurship and expand their mindset, Gabrielle and Marcella sought out to create a platform for young trailblazers and their supportive parents to connect, learn and grow through the power of "the village". Today, ExCEL reaches families throughout the United States, the Caribbean, South American, Africa, and Europe. ExCEL offers online programs suitable for individual home study and group collaborations along with our youth workshops and summit.
The ExCEL Youth Mentoring Institute™ is an equal opportunity organization, supporting youth without attention to race, color, religion, sexual orientation, or national origin.
