Champions of Change
Tyrone is the co-founder of Green Streets, an integrated waste management business developed and operated by public housing residents and their peers. Tyrone was raised in San Francisco's Western Addition and endured the obstacles that plague many inner city African American men. He experienced trouble at home, in school, and on the streets and ended up in prison. Using his trials and tribulations to propel him forward, Tyrone is a certified WRAP and Roots of Success instructor and co-facilitates ManAlive violence prevention trainings. Through the Green Streets peer to peer business model, Tyrone and his co-workers break down barriers to mental health and substance abuse treatment.
