About The Author John C (Jack) Johnson III Founder & CEO Jack was educated at Temple University, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Rutgers Law School, in Camden, New Jersey. In 1999, he moved to Atlanta, Georgia to pursue greater opportunities to provide Advocacy and Preventive Programmatic services for atrisk/ at-promise young persons, their families, and Justice Professionals embedded in the Juvenile Justice process in order to help facilitate its transcendence into the 21 st Century. There, along with a small group of community and faith-based professionals, “The Advocacy Foundation, Inc." was conceived and developed over roughly a thirteen year period, originally chartered as a Juvenile Delinquency Prevention and Educational Support Services organization consisting of Mentoring, Tutoring, Counseling, Character Development, Community Change Management, Practitioner Re-Education & Training, and a host of related components. The Foundation’s Overarching Mission is “To help Individuals, Organizations, & Communities Achieve Their Full Potential”, by implementing a wide array of evidence-based proactive multi-disciplinary "Restorative & Transformative Justice" programs & projects currently throughout the northeast, southeast, and western international-waters regions, providing prevention and support services to at-risk/ at-promise youth, to young adults, to their families, and to Social Service, Justice and Mental Health professionals” everywhere. The Foundation has since relocated its headquarters to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and been expanded to include a three-tier mission. In addition to his work with the Foundation, Jack also served as an Adjunct Professor of Law & Business at National-Louis University of Atlanta (where he taught Political Science, Business & Legal Ethics, Labor & Employment Relations, and Critical Thinking courses to undergraduate and graduate level students). Jack has also served as Board President for a host of wellestablished and up & coming nonprofit organizations throughout the region, including “Visions Unlimited Community Development Systems, Inc.”, a multi-million dollar, award-winning, Violence Prevention and Gang Intervention Social Service organization in Atlanta, as well as Vice-Chair of the Georgia/ Metropolitan Atlanta Violence Prevention Partnership, a state-wide 300 organizational member, violence prevention group led by the Morehouse School of Medicine, Emory University and The Original, Atlanta-Based, Martin Luther King Center.
