James hails from Kansas City, Missouri, but later resided in Washington, DC. He has worked on a multitude of issues that affect his community including childrenâs rights with the Childrenâs Defense Fund; youth justice with the Municipal Court of Independence; homelessness prevention with Enterprise Community Partners, Incorporated and Housing Counseling Services; and various constitutional rights issues with the U.S. House of Representatives and Office of Attorney General for the District of Columbia. These experiences confirmed with James that he has the knowledge and skill-set to build an organization that addresses the root of these issues. Ultimately, James would like to serve as an attorney for justice. He would like to take home the lessons and best practices he has learned in the nationâs capital to help build up the community in which he was born and raised. His passion for justice is what drew him to Young People For (YP4).
Phone: Career Database for Underserved College Graduates James Blueprint is the manifestation of a vision that started years ago. It seeks to open the doors to minority college graduates to job opportunities through the creation of a company that ensures underserved college graduates stay on their path toward career success, gain and maintain economic freedom, and have access to a pipeline of financial comfort. After this Blueprint is implemented and the company is fully developed, James envisions government, non-profit, and private sector employers utilizing this tool to diversify their offices and change the poor rate of hire for minorities. By placing this project in the hands of the National Pan-Hellenic Council, he is working to ensure minority greeks are at the forefront of putting economically disenfranchised populations in leadership positions.
