"Join, Engage, Change Lives"  




Mrs. Jacqueline Idlette-Reason is the Founder & Managing Director of Grow Non-Profit Services Corporation (GNPSC),a 501c3 organization that facilitate community engagement on behalf of member-clients. We specialize in establishing partnerships with community and faith-based organizations, and small business enterprises, to operate and manage social entrepreneurship programs that demonstrate strong potential for creation of new jobs, self-employment, business startup and/or expansion opportunities, work-based training, and other economic empowerment initiatives such as our monthly Gibson Neighborhood Marketplace (click to view 2022 event schedule).  

The corporation also operates Grow Institute to facilitate online delivery of our proprietary leadership and management training and technical assistance programs, which has proven over 18 years to provide a clear pathway to a long-term and financially rewarding business and/or non-profit focused career (see our most recent success story below). Grow Institute offers training for all ages including adult continuing education, youth job training and work experience, as well as college internships.

Mrs. Idlette-Reason has organized over 20 years of non-profit leadership and business management experience along with information, knowledge, data, tools and resources, and the most effective service strategies to create a comprehensive and proprietary training system and program framework to support replication, including a staff certification component.
