Curtis Stout | Founder & Executive Director
After a nine month mission trip to Haiti in 2010, Curtis returned home to the Midwest with a burden for the left behind. In 2011, he started Project 117 with a group of friends from his local church. Two years later, Curtis saw God provide as we were able to open our first school for 35 students. Ever since then, he has been striving to help staff, students, and volunteers discover their role in God's story.
