Spirit of Excellence connects young people with qualified mentors to develop their potential personally, professionally, and artistically, inspiring a life of excellence!

Diamonds, the most valuable gems in the world, are mined from raw ore. The ore is crushed, the diamonds extracted, and then a process of cutting, polishing, and arranging takes place. The result is a dazzling display of beauty, as the diamond’s inherent worth is evident for all the world to see!

At Spirit of Excellence, we believe that every person is a diamond possessing tremendous inherent worth. Our goal is to bring out their dazzling potential as we inspire a lifestyle of excellence

Founded in June 2003, SOE purchased the Spirit of Excellence Creativity Training Centre buildings (located at 1012 and 1018 Drouillard Rd., Windsor) in 2005. This beautiful historic structure (originally Morris Dry Goods Store from the 1940s) encompasses nearly 8,000 square feet and is located within the urban community of Ford City in Windsor, Ontario. This is the headquarters for Spirit of Excellence which is a Canada Revenue Approved, Non-profit Registered Charity and Seminary of Learning in the Worship Arts, Professional Beauty Arts, and the Queen Esther Finishing School of Excellence – imparting professional skills in verbal and non-verbal communication skills, life skills, wardrobe for success in personal image, corporate protocol with confidence, non-verbal communication skills, and etiquette.

With a faith based and poverty focused mission, SOE has spent the past ten years promoting the arts to discover, realize and activate potential, building confidence in a safe and positive environment. Providing poverty relief through education, creativity, counselling and food programs, it has been their life’s mission to help children and families have the resources and support to develop important entrepreneurial and leadership skills.
