Arlen “GRIFF” Griffin has been working with young people since well … he actually was one. In High School he participated in programs around conflict management working with teens to resolve anger problems during the school day. He branched off to speaking to kids at the local Alternative schools around California.
While in the ARMY “GRIFF” was one of the youngest people to graduate from Basic Training at the age of 17. His leadership skills were honed at a very early age and as he transitioned from the stripes to the stage, with almost 25 years of comedy under his belt, he understood that he was more than a comedian.
“GRIFF” is an author of the acclaimed book for mothers raising sons, ‘Cats and Puppies,’ a 5 time BET All Star, with a number of movies and voice overs to his credit. You’ve also seen him on the STARZ network, Showtime, TV ONE, MTV and in 2013 he became the first American to tape Comedy Central Africa, appearing on that network a total of three times. He can be heard around the country every morning with the talented Erica Campbell, from the group Mary Mary as they wake up the Nation on ‘Get Up Mornings.’ At the present time he’s working on tv sitcoms, cartoon voice overs and international documentaries.
His true heart is to make sure that no kid on the planet will have to feel what he felt growing up in very turbulent households as a child. His mother, Lenoir Jenkins instilled in him at an early age that he had a destiny and it was his purpose to fulfill just that. His comedy and gift for people truly comes from his passion to help and heal broken boys between the ages of 7-15.
Through his faith in GOD, “GRIFF” promises that The Process Success Foundation will be a global bridge to end world wide generational curses through hands on field trips and constant communication with young men.
