Founded by Corey, Troublemaker Foundation has inspired many young people to identify and commit to achieving their full potential.
Troublemaker Foundation was publicly launched as a California corporation in August of 2013 and granted federal 501(c)(3) non-profit status a year later. Troublemaker was organized exclusively for charitable purposes; specifically Troublemaker Foundation conducts youth outreach initiatives focused on self-improvement motivation and empowerment to encourage young people to reach their full potential through practical goal setting and an applied positive outlook on life.
Troublemaker was created under the premise that each individual has within himself or herself the power of self-determination, and that actualizing such a life requires goal setting. The foundation encourages young people to reach their potential and succeed in their life endeavors through inspirational messages, engagement opportunities, educational opportunities, interactive programs and events, and practical tactics.
It starts with three steps:
1. Accept – Be comfortable with who you are; apply that to others
2. Empower – Spread out as you go up; help others along your journey
3. Achieve – Set goals and enjoy your accomplishments, large and small, they all count
The foundation believes following these three steps can make the world of difference for any young person, but especially for those who have been picked on, bullied or saddled with a negative label–like troublemaker. These steps are intended to help young people accept who they are, identify their goals and then point them to the tools and tactics to help achieve them. The foundation also believes that feeling comfortable in one’s own skin is a universal necessity and that young people going through any challenge can be successful by helping them identify and apply their innate abilities.
The mission of the foundation is to empower youth to achieve their dreams through outreach and positive self-motivation, and goal setting.
The vision of the foundation is to be the leader in helping and motivating youth despite societies labels to pursue their dreams through acceptance, empowerment, and achievement.
