Giving Back

“We ask that you support our team by partnering with us to lift the communities we serve”

Our Founder

Mr. Darryl Marquette

Mr. Darryl Marquette has an EXTRAORDINARY passion for “giving back” by affecting positive change and empowering individuals and communities. Mr. Marquette’s God inspired vision is to eradicate the generational cycle of poverty and government dependence and create self sufficient individuals & families, “pillars” of our community, outstanding corporate citizens and exceptional global leaders.

Thus, Marque Empowerment Academy, lnc. (M.E.A.I.) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that was “birthed” in June 2013 to address the N.E.E.D.S. of disenfranchised individuals and communities throughout Atlanta, Georgia and surrounding areas. M.E.A.I. is designed to enhance personal strengths and the quality of life of youth and adults faced with environmental and cognitive challenges such as hunger, poverty, disenfranchisement, low self esteem, lack of positive strong role model presence, entrepreneurial skills and decent shelter.
