When he was a fifth-grade student, Deon Byers frequently played sports in the gym where Repairing the Breach held its programming. Curious, he became involved with RTB, and began building communications and leadership skills. He was compelled to develop a deeper connection to God and his community. As a freshman in high school, RTB coached him on how to start an in-school bible club. H-Club is still impacting many students today with the help of Deon and other staff at RTB. Repairing the Breach helped him unlock the leadership ability giving him a desire to help his peers do the same. He graduated high school and went on to receive his Associates degree in theology from RiverBible Institute in Tampa, Florida. He has also returned to Repairing the Breach to work with youth facing the same hurdles he previously faced. He is elated to help middle school and high school students through a leadership training academy, encouraging them to deepen their connection with God and build their skill sets to increase their employability just as he was taught as a child in RTB. Deon believes RTB helps bring out the best in young people.
