Assistance to Victims of Crime
SPEAKOUT was founded in 1996 by Pastor Kelly Akinjole who lived in the South-east Raleigh community for over a decade. In his office as pastor he was able to observe at close range the needs of the community.
In trying to take on these existing challenges, he approached several skilled professionals who could render service in their relevant fields, to aptly address these problems.
The organization also partners with other service providers who work within the community.
Establish a vocational training center and apprentice scheme. This would provide access to jobs especially for those who do not qualify for tertiary education and training.
Provide a medium for public health education and advocacy work, life and job skills training. Promote good work ethics, self help, and income generating schemes within the community.
SPEAKOUT consists mostly of volunteers, each with a passion to help unlock the economic potential of residents in the Southeast Raleigh area. We are a hands
on organization with a mission to mend broken lives and generate hope in those who have lost it.
