My name is Gregory Pruitt Jr. I was born and raised on the Southside of Chicago. I was uncertain of what I wanted to do after high school so decided to attend Kennedy King College. I lived in three different cities Atlanta, where I obtain my Bachelor’s in Social Work from Clark Atlanta University. From Atlanta I was offered an opportunity to move to Miami, Florida to pursue my Master’s in Social Work. After completing my MSW program at Barry University, I moved to Sacramento, California. In 2009, I moved back to Chicago to help young people specifically black and brown boys in low income areas. I also worked inside of Chicago Public Schools as a Crisis Coordinator and as a Freshman/Sophomore Dean. I enjoy riding my bicycle on the lakefront, taking my sons to the park and traveling.
