“I have learned that most people all over the world want the same thing…a better world for themselves, their families, and their communities. What keeps us trapped is often the lack of knowledge or the lack of a process. I believe that to truly serve others, we must provide them with both a process and knowledge. The hour is late, the time is short, the task is great and we have a lot of work to do.” – Jahmad Canley

In addition to his work, Jahmad is a dedicated family man and community member. In fact, you’ll often find his wife, two daughters, and son traveling alongside him in support of various events. Jahmad is also the founder of the Tacoma Gents program.

Tacoma Gents works with young men of color in the 3rd to 5th grades teaching L.I.F.E. (leadership, image/integrity, financial literacy, and etiquette) skills.

The program is now in its 5th year in partnership with Tacoma Public Schools.
