Esprit de Corps at a Glance

Ronnell L. Showell,  Founder  & Philanthropist is a devout ambassador of the Christian faith. Who cares about improving the public health within the minority communities: physical, mental and social well being. His goals are to bring knowledge of our communities social determinants, awareness programs and disseminate asymmetrical information to the populace; which will give rise to a positive trajectory via transferable knowledge leading to a better quality of living within the black and brown people for a better tomorrow.

Esprit de Corps means morale, cohesiveness and loyalty. We value our meaning that is our strength and we stand by our words; which is to deliver upon the actions of our initiatives. In early 2020, our Non-Profit Organization team and dedicated members decided to step up and be proactive within our under served minority communities. We implemented working ideals and programs that will assist our youth and adult population to overcome systemic pain points. We are their mentors, that will lead, guide and train all those needing this transferable knowledge via our qualified training and certified programs.

Our servant leaders are Spiritual leaders, Teachers, Military Veterans and Coaches who had life experiences and know how to use best practices to instill learning. We teach to educate and instruct to demonstrate how to utilize transfer information into tangible skill sets. We will provide the necessary training styles and tools that will yield success for each individual; to complete their full training program, thus becoming positive leaders within their perspective communities.

We will vow to work hand in hand with our candidates: youth, adolescence, adults, and seniors within minority communities to bridge the gaps between the people of various ages.   Together, we shall overcome our challenges one by one with effective solutions and more efficient programs. Esprit de Corps is the "genesis project" for a new beginning in all minority communities.
