" Just ready for something different and outside of the box! I scream inwardly everyday because I see a deeper need in our children that is not being met. Tired of the people wanting something for giving a dollar. Our babies need an outlet, a better guidance, options and activities that will help guide them a long the right path. I cannot give up. I won't give in to the cancerous mindsets. Now, it may not look wordy like some folk want it, but I believe in THIS, for THESE are everyone's precious times and we should cherish them" Joy "Joy4Real" Chiles My passion for teaching about life stems beyond the classroom. Strengthening the quality of how professional developments are delivered in the workplace and building educational programs for youth and young adults between the ages of 12-19, I created Preciouss Timess Inc. with the purpose of delivering engaging, mind changing and inspirational workshops that promotes brisk and influential changes in the the lives of everyday people. Introducing a new way of disseminating information, one that opens the flow of effective communication with increasing results, I have branched into producing community service programs for young adults that are high-risk of being a victim of sexual mischievousness, drug use/abuse, community violence, suicide, low self-esteem and depression. Forming informational sessions with parents and community leaders to help them understand in-depth children's current situations, ‘The Talk Session’ has become a must have. Talk Sessions is a group that was created as a peer mentoring platform for parents and their children to engage in positive dialogue; allowing all parties to be heard in comfortable atmosphere. Supplying the demand for these sessions, I then branched out to work with businesses and private organizations to use my skills and expertise to help them reach their mission in vision in the workplace and in the community.
With the experience of working in the human services sector, I have lent my hand in assisting with the Durham Rescue Mission, Meals on Wheels, Scrap Exchange of Durham, the Baltimore Juvenile Justice Center, Gardenzia Inc. Drug treatment, Maryland Department of Corrections for Men/Women and other program modalities, such as group dynamics, individual counseling, consulting and management to name a few. With a reputation of providing, “Outstanding workshops that tackle the real issues”, I was elected the Professional Development Chair for the North Carolina Association of Career and Technical Education (NCACTE) for the year of 2016-2017. I was featured in the, ‘Cary Connection News Paper' and was recognized by the Cary Chamber of Commerce of Wake County Public Schools for the nomination for Teacher of the Year 2015.
With family as a strong backing, they have allowed me to pursue my career goals and life aspirations. In my spare time, I take advantage of spending time with them and looking for avenues to help people. I will always continue to pursue my passion of helping others be equipped with the knowledge and skills they need to be successful and pushing the need for an increase in productive and healthy family's and youth today.
" One day these children, young adults, adults and senior citizens will have an effect on my babies. How can I not get involved and do nothing?" Joy 'Joy4Real' Chiles
