Mr. Coleman has always been refreshing to

the Johnson family YMCA through his Guy

Talk. His program offers a secure space for

candid conversations, allowing young men

to open up and discuss their experiences

and the issues they face. Mr. Coleman has

established a trust circle where young men

can discuss various topics, including

emotional intelligence and how to overcome

societal expectations of black youth.

The program also explores what it means to

be a man and encourages breaking away

from traditional stereotypes.

The global impact of, “Fatherhood Fridays“

have been felt far and wide. His words have

challenged fathers from the east coast to west

coast and all the way into the Caribbean.

Beyond Devin’s phenomenal character and

impeccable integrity, we have been thoroughly

impressed and deeply inspired with his

consistency. He is a man of his word and

changed the trajectory of several fathers, for

the good, without organization.

Devin’s wisdom, words of encouragement

and fatherly insights are life changing,

mindset altering and heart assuring.

Mr. Coleman offered an extensive and

team building.
