Tony Walker graduated from Robert Morris College with a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration and a concentration in Accounting. He has been in the banking profession for over 20 years. Tony knew early on that he had a love for working with teens and adolescents. He has over 15 years experience working with at risk youth through mentoring at his church and in various schools and organizations throughout the Chicagoland area. Tony has helped promote self-esteem, self-awareness, and empowered them to be the best they can be and help them avoid the common pitfalls most inner city youth succumb to. He combines his knowledge of the corporate world and his passion for youth to help them overcome every day obstacles in a useful and professional manner. “I believe that in order for a child to excel and be successful in everything that they do, they must be empowered. It must be reinforced DAILY that every child can achieve and be anything they want to be. They need support, unconditional love, and all the resources afforded to them in their school and community”.
