Our Founder

Tunisian-born Ben Amor recently chronicled his life story in "The Urban Shepherd," a motivational biography bringing Ben from a hard-scrabble childhood to make his own reality and success in life — a story we can all emulate.

And since 1984, Ben has been inspiring others with his story. He is your guide in taking that first step ... then another. In grabbing that next rung to climb out of a difficult situation. READ “THE URBAN SHEPHERD”
