ERIC L. WASHINGTON
My involvement in sports and various community outreach programs has played an integral part in me refraining from a life of crime and negative peer influences. Athletics and community programming like Granville Academy was a driving force in me continuing my education, I've received my Bachelor's and Master’s degrees from the University of New Haven, where I majored in Criminal Justice. Throughout my 20 year career working in Human Services and my 15 years working as a Connecticut Parole Officer I’ve been able to identify the ongoing trauma that a lot of today’s children are subjected to. I’ve made it my mission to do what I can to help improve our children’s wellness and academic growth so that they can become successful citizens in our communities.
I’m a certified personal trainer through American Muscle & Fitness Personal Training (AMFPT), which I specialize in one on one, group, and senior fitness training. My training and expertise in the field of fitness allows me to service the youth in the area of exercise which helps to alleviate their overall stress levels and enhance their interpersonal skills amongst their peers and family.
I chose to establish Built 4 Success Inc. to supplement our schools and communities by offering classes and programs that provide influential guidance and support today’s youth. With the emergence of social media, we have to make a greater efforts to connect with our children, as they grow with technology we have to grow with them as well. Built 4 Success Inc. helps to address adolescent mental health and educational growth.
