Don Peppers founded the Proverbs Mentoring Organization (PMO) in Pendleton, South Carolina. Its mission is to enhance youth leadership skills in several areas. As he reaches out to at-risk children, Don first instills in them the importance of being an active part of their community. He shows them that academic performance is as vital as athletic ability. PMO also incorporates religion as the foundation for positive behavior and decisions. And Don demonstrates how an understanding of entrepreneurship is the basis for developing successful career goals. Among the events he organizes for students is Camp Proverbs, which teaches the importance of a strong work ethic, the value of teamwork, and the strength of leadership. Don represents the essence of mentorship that inspires the Restoration Project.
