Quentin Mables grew up in the Englewood community and graduated from Harper High School. He is dedicated to working towards positively transforming the lives of his friends and neighbors. In 2013, Quentin met founder Robbin Carroll when she was passing out Subway sandwiches on the street corner and sharing her ideas for a Peace House in West Englewood. Quentin was one of the first people to stand up and commit to taking back his community, and he immediately began cleaning up trash from the street. Certified in Yoga for Youth, Quentin has worked with IGC for the past three years as Assistant Executive Director and children’s yoga teacher. Quentin now serves as IGC’s Co-Executive Director since August 2016. Quentin oversees all work development program participants and community staff members. His leadership in the Englewood community through IGC has been featured in news outlets including CNN, the Chicago Tribune, and Crain’s Magazine “20 in their 20s.”
We engage, empower, and employ Englewood residents to lead our healing programs.
It takes one seed, one step, one chance to change a person’s life. And one dollar can go a long way in helping us to make that happen.
