Cory Beal, Sr. is the Founder and CEO of Rekindled Dreams, an organization that’s committed to providing enlightenment to what many consider a bleak future for young adults within the African American community. Cory’s motivation for starting the organization comes from his experiences growing up as a Black male in the challenging neighborhoods of Chicago, IL. Cory was one of the city’s top athletes, yet devoid of any true leadership, Cory did not maximize his athletic opportunities. And those missed opportunities have motivated him to always have an everlasting connection and impact on the lives of his children.
As a member of Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc., Cory serves as a mentor to many aspiring young professionals nationwide, who consistently reach out to him for guidance and support, and who admire his heartfelt ambitions, along with his charismatic nature. Because of his interest in reducing children’s exposure to concentrated poverty, which is an obstacle to economic mobility, Cory has connected with Family First Life ,one of the world’s largest financial services companies, in order to educate and empower individuals and families with the economical sophistication that was once reserved for only the rich and powerful. Mr. Beal is on a mission and he is driven by his passion to cultivate positive change within the African American community.
