Founded in 1996, The Tenacious Group, Inc. a non-profit organization created to empower purpose thinking. Purpose Thinking motivates a person to believe in their unique strengths, capabilities and potential. Since its inception The Tenacious Team has spoken face to face to over 350,000 students on school campuses and classrooms, hundreds of teachers, youth specialists, professional athletes & coaches. 

Statistics reveal 3 out 4 people are trying to find their purpose in life. When a person lives without a sense of purpose they will not have the proper attitude to assess future opportunities, will lack resiliency skills needed to overcome setbacks, and tools needed to develop a roadmap for success. 

We firmly believe there are hundreds of gifts & abilities within each young person and many more incredible exploits to accomplish. 

The Tenacious Group, Inc. instills hope and purpose with our unique Professional Development Training Services, Classroom Resources for unmotivated students, Education Art, and feature-length film...Making Of A Gangsta.
