“Tyrone Thompson spoke with me and a few colleagues about his vision for a community place for teens. He wanted to create an opportunity for teens and young adults to have a place, with a Starbucks feel, where they could feel safe and comfortable. He loved giving back to his community, especially to the youth. At the unfortunate event of his passing, a team of community leaders, including myself, took Tyrone`s vision and made it into reality. The primary goal behind Ty`s Place is to support teens and young adults transition into adulthood through mentorship and leadership training; building future leaders. Another goal is to expand to multiple Ty`s Place facilities throughout the City of Las Vegas Nevada."
