Live free, live full, leave a legacy...

Rev. Maurice D. Winley is third-generation minister who carries on the legacy of his family. He has been active as a youth development specialist with 17 years of experience working with youth and families. He has worked with the full spectrum of youth in various systems, and settings.

As a sought-after consultant on youth initiatives with various community based organizations in the Greater New York City area, Mr. Winley has worked with several nationally and internationally based organizations such as Worldvision, Youth for Christ, Navigators, has served a term as Vice President of the National Chaplains Association for Youth at Risk, and Chaplain for St. Christopher's Inc, an adolescent residential treatment facility serving NYC youth, located in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y.

Mr. Winley currently serves as the Director of Operations, at the Soul Saving Station Church, located in Harlem, N.Y., and is a Board member of the 125th St. Business Improvement District.

In April, the New York City Department of Probation, along with 20 nonprofit organizations, launched Arches, a transformative mentoring intervention for young adults on probation in New York City.

Arches transformative mentoring is a curriculum-based group mentoring intervention that employs credible messengers as mentors to help justice-involved young adults transform the attitudes and behaviors that have led to criminal activity. 

Arches is part of Mayor Bloomberg's Young Men's Initiative (YMI), a comprehensive effort to tackle the broad disparities slowing the advancement of Black and Latino young men. Arches is designed to serve over 350 young adults in targeted neighborhoods throughout the city, including Harlem, the Bronx, East New York, Brownsville, Bedford Stuyvesant, and Staten Island.

Maurice Winley has the privilege of serving both as a Project Coordinator for ARCHES in Harlem in conjunction with Harlem Commonwealth Council, Inc. and member of the ARCHES Learning Community Steering Committee.
