Mr. Verlin Jay Alexander, III, M.S.
President/CEO – The Future Promises Foundation, Inc.
As a part of his desire and commitment to inspire the landscape where our youth are challenged the most, Verlin Jay Alexander, III, professor, counselor, and graduate of Wilmington University, along with an esteemed board of directors, launched the Future Promises Foundation with a mission of Inspiring youth empowerment and social change through education, positive youth development, and leadership.
Mr. Alexander is an Alumnus of Wilmington University where he received his Undergraduate degree in Communications and Interactive Media, as well as two Master’s degrees in Information Systems Technology and Administration of Human Services. While most of his career led him into digital media and technology, it was being employed with the University, now for over fifteen years, that began is journey working with youth and education as well as leveraging the opportunities of working with community organizations such as United Way’s Revive the Village, an affinity program that serves as a convener to address issues specific to our young African-American males in the Delaware community.
Mr. Alexander also remains active as a member of the Nu Upsilon Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. where both in 2008 and 2009, he received the Basileus Award for Exemplary Service to the community by way of various social action programs such as:
- Feeding the homeless through the Sunday Breakfast Mission
- Achievement Week
- Clothes, Coat & Shoe Drives
- Omega Village Enrichment Program
There is no doubt that his drive and willingness to help are fundamental elements of what makes him who he is. In as much as he relies on a certain level of professionalism, and business acumen one things is for sure. If he’s not working endlessly at his desk, making phone calls or working on various projects you may find him volunteering throughout the year at Wilmington Headstart or the YMCA where he also takes his love for inspiring creativity and imagination through cosplay which he crafts himself.
