Cornell Stone

CEO and Founder

Cornell Stone has over 20 years of experience in the District of Columbia government and offers a great wealth of knowledge, leadership and innovative ideas to the Y.I.M.A.E. program. Before beginning to fulfill his vision in manifesting and creating the Y.I.M.A.E. program, Mr. Stone served as a Program Monitor at the Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services (DYRS). He was quickly promoted to his current position as a Contract Service Specialist, and has been serving in this position for six years. Prior to his tenure in the District serving the youth, Mr. Stone served as a Forensic Psychiatric Technician at St. Elizabeth Hospital (John Howard Pavilion) and received the 2009 Employee Spotlight in the District of Columbia for Outstanding Work and rendered services to the Community Based Programs for youth in the metropolitan area.

Mr. Stone graduated from the Duke Ellington School of Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. and attended the University of the District of Columbia. Being aggressive with his ever-expanding ideas of merging Academics and Entertainment, this endeavor will allow Mr. Stone to introduce innovative ideas and positive youth development tactics that will change the face of youth rehabilitation forever. To supplement the inherent challenge of accomplishing these feats, Mr. Stone’s successes were achieved through God's vision, obedience, and hands-on experience through his own life. The magnitude of these achievements at a period in which Stone had to experience will be demonstrated through the caliber of Y.I.M.A.E.'s staff, effectiveness, and Y.I.M.A.E.'s ability to yield groundbreaking results. After all, Stone's main objective is to ensure the safety and welfare for the youth and the re-uniting of families to bring forth positive measurable outcomes.

The mission of Youth in Media and Education (Y.I.M.A.E.) is to promote artistic expressions and self-empowerment through a comprehensive program that covers all areas of academics, the entertainment/media industry and vocational training. Through the program, court and non-court involved youth will enhance their social skills and transition into productive citizens in the community at large.
