AEU is the manager of a marine based workers compensation company with about 70 employees in Mobile.
In 2008, AEU was the first corporate sponsor in this area to work with BBBS in their school based program; since that time, this program has grown to 24 local sponsors.
AEU has as many as 20 volunteer employees in any given school year working with students at Pillans Middle School and BC Rain High School.
Employees are allowed to leave work once a week to work one to one with the student while they are at school.
The program costs the business nothing but a little time; the children get access to caring professionals who help them gain confidence, improve their attitude toward school, and brighten their sense of what the future holds for them.
BBBS and AEU, helping to build successful mentoring relationships, contributing to better schools, brighter futures and stronger communities for all!

Faith Community Blueprint
Love Mobile (#lovmob) is a movement started by Brad Goode, Associate Pastor of Dauphin Way United Methodist Church.
Love Mobile (#lovmob) is about loving others by showing "radical love and grace".
The Premise is to show love with no preconditions or expectations of repayment.
This movement is about changing the narrative by choosing love and responsibility over blame.
Love Mobile recently created a community garden, and performs love at the laundromat activities once per month.
The Community Development team recommends a comprehensive link on the One Mobile website that will assist with the implementation of Community Engagement Blueprints for Individuals, Companies, Faith Communities and Organizations wanting to participate in existing Community Development projects or create their own.
Phase 1: Calendar, links to non-profits
with contact information and blueprints.
Phase 2: Community Resource information, submit events option,
non-profit submit option.
Phase 3: City wide map to show location of volunteer opportunities.
The impact of this project will further enhance our ability to create Community Development projects that make our area a better place to live and work. It will enable all citizens to become involved in existing projects or create a specific project for a specific need existing in our community.
By gathering all of this information and having a common platform to share this information, we can build a stronger community that meets the needs of everyone.
In conclusion, we desire for this project to evolve as we look for different ways to enhance our community through giving back. As we look for ways to build a better One Mobile, this project will provide the tools to do just that.
We would like to give a special thank you to,
Mayor Sandy Stimpson | The City of Mobile | OneMobile.org
We would like to thank Leadership Mobile for this opportunity. Our group used all of our tools shared through out the program and as you can see, WE are one of the BEST!
We are proud to join Partnership with Mayor Sandy Stimpson and OneMobile
"I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples"
- Mother Teresa
"Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time.
Vision with action can change the world" - Joel A. Barker
We can give Mobilians a better community in which to live, an improved quality of life, and a more prosperous future, if we use our resources from within, to help those in need and create a ripple effect that will have an everlasting effect in our community.
Starting with case studies to show examples of good work being done in our neighborhoods as we speak. Whether it be a large company, small company, faith based organizations, neighborhood group or individuals.
We propose supporting the Mayor's goal of "One Mobile: by using a link on the existing website to provide an "ease of doing business" for those who have time, resources, and energy to give, to find those in their surrounding communities who have a need.
