Grand Rapids, Mich., Nov. 28, 2005 – Jody Victor of the Independent Business Owners Association International (IBOAI) announced the trade association’s enthusiastic support for Quixtar’s sponsorship of the U.S. Dream Academy.
“Our members, Independent Business Owners (IBOs) powered by Quixtar have supported the U.S. Dream Academy since its inception in 1998,” says Jody Victor.
“We’re thrilled to have Quixtar join us in championing this very worthy cause,” says Billy Florence, IBOAI president. “Jody Victor and I serve on the U.S. Dream Academy and the IBOAI boards as a public service and as a service to the IBO membership of our association. We believe in the US Dream Academy’s commitment to leveling the playing field for these special children and the IBOAI’s commitment to protecting our members’ business future,” adds Billy Florence.
Established by renowned gospel singer Rev. Wintley Phipps in 1998, the U.S. Dream Academy empowers at-risk youth by providing them with academic, social, and values enrichment through supportive mentoring programs.
“Through their mentoring programs,” says Jody Victor. “The U.S. Dream Academy provides thousands of children the resources and encouragement they need to succeed.”
“Quixtar IBOs have supported the U.S. Dream Academy financially and through donation of products and time,” states Billy Florence.
“Our members have a tradition of helping others achieve their dreams through a business of their own,” explains Jody Victor. “So, working with the U.S. Dream Academy is a natural extension of our desire to help people live better lives.”
The U.S. Dream Academy places a special emphasis on children with an incarcerated parent. “Studies have shown that these kids are six times more likely to end up in prison,” says Victor. The Academy works to break that cycle and provides programs for children falling behind in school.
