“PREPARING YOURSELF IS TO PREVENT REPAIRING YOURSELF.”
– Relationship Scientist Ryeal Simms. Ph.D.
“We introduced Ryeal’s relationship workshop to our students three years ago and it has become one of our most requested sessions. It gives students much needed information about developing positive and healthy relationships.” ~Vonda Paige, Executive Director, Tavis Smiley Foundation, Los Angeles, CA.
“Coach Ryeal has the gift for creating the conditions for young adults to talk about relationships. His poignant questions allowed people to discuss matters of the mind, body, and soul. You leave his sessions empowered, and prepared to have a healthy relationship.” ~ Renee Smith-Maddox, Ph.D., former Director of the Los Angeles Urban League’s Milken Family Literacy & Youth Training Center.
“We talk so much about leadership and being positive in the community, but we don’t talk about our personal lives, and how we can take these same relationship tools that we learned to really enhance our lives on a total scale. To bridge that connection was amazing.” ~Marco Patton, 18, Tavis Smiley Foundation Leadership Institute Participant.
“Your enthusiasm and excitement are contagious. You have the unique ability to communicate the most complex relationship principles in a simple everyday language that teenagers can understand. It takes love, kindness and humility to connect to an audience of 9th through 12th graders in our inner city and you did!” ~ Gloria J. Davis, Executive Director Girls Club of Los Angeles.
“Ryeal, thank you for sharing your relationship wisdom. Our teenagers desperately need to be exposed to this information so that they can make smart choices when it comes to “hooking up”. The girls really enjoyed you and can’t wait until the next session of “How to Choose the Right Boyfriend!” Every teen group should be begging you to come!” ~ Kenadie Cobbin Richardson, Executive Director HerShe Group, Los Angeles, CA.
