Sarah Vincent has worked for over 25 years with at risk youth and families as a Recovery Mentor, Drug and Alcohol Counselor, Financial Education Advisor, and Parent Advocate. She runs a nonprofit, Soul Purpose, and helps at risk youth with multiple programs. She has a mobile fitness unit that she takes to treatment facilities, schools, and the juvenile department, and focuses on holistic fitness in her programming. She also has YEP- Youth Empowerment Program, which provides holistic fitness and vocational education programming. She connects with youth and their families and is uniquely able to meet people where they are, especially in the struggle. She has also developed the Alliance Mentorship Program that is a youth/ guardian conflict resolution blueprint. One of her passions is public speaking and outreach in her community to help deal with generational addiction and poverty.
As a former addict that has overcome trauma from childhood abuse, an eating disorder, obesity, cocaine addiction, and other self destructive behaviors, she knows what it’s like to feel lost. She understands the struggle to overcome adversity and helps others move from questioning life to finding purpose. Sarah understands that overcoming adversity is a multifaceted journey that involves the mind, body and soul. She knows the power of focusing on mindset to discover your worth, grow your self-esteem, and feel empowered to reach your goals. Through fitness and self-exploration she has been able to step out of old identities that she allowed others to place on her, and step into her purpose and passion. Sarah’s purpose is to educate, empower and elevate at risk youth beyond their current circumstances. She is mission driven to help others see that their past is not their potential.
