The mission of Speed, Props & Pylons (SPP) and G.A.L.S. (Guidance And Learning Services) Technology is to inspire the next generation through a wide variety of educational activities, projects, and classes, while at the same time providing consumers with high-quality and customized products. Starting off as a small, custom screen-printing and embroidery shop, we have grown to serve clients all over the world with premium products, serving consumers of all backgrounds and walks of life. But in spite of our success, we felt a profound sense that something was missing in our purpose. This void in our mission was felt most powerfully when reflecting on the future and on the next generation of Americans.
As the years and decades have gone by, we have witnessed the breakdown of education, family life, and civil society at a rate entirely unforeseen, yet scarcely noticed by those of us who are busy working and doing everything we can to better our future and the futures of our children. We have seen in our youth a lack of drive to accomplish goals and to overcome challenges from lack of encouragement and direction, as well as a decline in the creative ingenuity and critical thinking once possessed by young Americans; absent also is the motivation and desire to achieve new heights and dreams.
Upon such reflection, we realized the missing piece to our mission: education. And the education we have since sought to provide serves people of all ages and socioeconomic backgrounds. We seek to provide students and adults with the educational experience they need to pursue careers and hobbies related to business, technology and the arts. Using our background in screen-printing, embroidery and entrepreneurship, we have developed comprehensive certificate and internship programs designed to prepare young adults for careers related to business, screen-printing, embroidery, and the graphic arts.
We have also expanded our educational services to target our youth specifically. We now provide tutoring options across a range of subjects, ACT prep courses, STEM education courses, and classes related to finance and marketing. In addition, we assist beginning entrepreneurs in achieving their goals while teaching them the foundations necessary for establishing a stable business.
Lastly, we are currently in the process of establishing a 6-12 private school called Classical Academy of Practical Education, whose vision it is to form young men and women of virtue who possess the skills needed to engage the world from a variety of perspectives, the capacity to properly assess and adapt to different situations, and the ability to argue for, and in defense of, their basic moral and philosophical principles.
We have an incredibly talented and dedicated staff who are strongly devoted to our mission of providing quality products and educational services to our clients and to our communities. We are working hard to fulfill the needs of our clients and our society at large. We are thus proud of our products, programs, and services, and we would be honored to have you as one of our clients, students, or donors. If you are interested in or would like to learn more about who we are, please do not hesitate to reach out to us by phone, email or in person.
Making dreams become a reality!
