Testimonials

The symposiums and one on one conversation's with Mr. Vick, Mr. Eric and Mr. Raymond all gave him positive insights on decision making concerning his future and everyday life.

...
I would rate Dwight Vick as one of the best speakers I've ever had the pleasure to work with. His willingness to spend time tailoring the presentation and talking to students prior to and after the program was most appreciated. I wish all the speakers I work with could be as generous and caring about the outcome of their efforts as you are. Dwight is very genuine and brings a lot of realism and practical thinking to his work. He has the ability to reach across diverse audiences and establish an immediate connection with participants. I'm confident that those who apply his experience-based advice will take their organization to the next level . would encourage any organization to Dwight Vick's program if they're committed to continuous improvement and developing their people.
...
Mr. Dwight Vick has served as a great resource, mentor and advocate for my college bound students and athletes. Mr. Vick has provided workshops pertaining to the NCAA requirements and resources for SAT Prep and athletic scholarships. College Prep World has also organized a number of college tours for high school sophomore, junior and senior students. The college tours are very informative. The students appear to always enjoy themselves and they leave with increase knowledge of post-secondary options. The College Prep World staff are very professional and serve as great role models and mentors for my students. Mr. Vick has helped motivate students through his inspirational presentations and workshops.
...
Words cannot express the gratitude I have for Mr. Vick coming into my son's life as his mentor. He essentially became a family member. Mr. Vick shows that he loves and truly cares for the kids enrolled in the Student Development program. He is not just involved in their life for a pay check but to make a difference in their lives. He has a gift in which he is able to reach them at their level and to help them achieve greatness. Not only do the children benefit from this interaction and relationship, I have used him as a sound board on many occasions to keep my sanity as a parent, and he was always willing to listen. Anyone who has the opportunity to be in Mr. Vick's program should take full-advantage, these programs are VERY RARE and it is a blessing to have him in our lives.
...
Working with Dwight Vick has been an amazing experience for me as a volunteer. I am honored to be able to watch Mr. Vick to live in his passion of helping students, but more specifically young students that have a desire to be, or currently are athletes. He makes an effort to help these students not only be successful as athletes, but as college students. He stresses the importance that every athlete also needs education and a back -up career plan. I have never seen anyone put in so much faith, love, commitment, and time into the lives of the youth. Mr. Vick is by far an excellent speaker, and excellent role model, family man, and mentor. What sets his program apart is the consistency of the volunteers, training, topics, and commitment to individual student success. Mr. Vick has NEVER let limited resources or finances stop him from delivering high quality programs. He just knows the right network of people that are always willing to bring a specialized program or topic to the students. These topics include professional dress, life skills, financial management, and communication skills for example. For Mr. Vick, it is more than about how to train hard as an athlete, but to be holistic human beings that recognize that there are people in this world committed to trying their best to be a positive contribution to the world vs. a burden. I will continue to volunteer to support this program as long as it is around because it is a cause that contributes to today's youth, which in turn, has a positive impact on our communities and our world. Congratulations to College Prep World for many years of commitment to youth.
~ Vonetta Christian, "Mother"
Mr. Vick is dedicated to empowering our youth by providing them with the necessary tools to succeed. This is clearly evident in his professional programs including the competitive camps and uplifting symposium speakers. As a mom to a competitive athlete, I'm hesitant of where I send my son for camps. I do not want to waste our time by spending hours or weekends at an event that proved to be unprofessional, disorganized or useless. We have attended a couple of symposiums and camps sponsored by College Prep World, and each attendance provides us with more determination and wisdom to continue to work hard in the classroom and on the field. Thank you Dwight Vick for your compassion in our youth.


Dwight Vick, former Virginia ...

Dwight Vick, former Virginia Tech offensive lineman, used to measure his success in the amount of impacts he could make on the defense. Now, the impact he strives for is far more enduring.

On Wednesday, Dwight Vick made a return appearance to campus to speak about his journey before and after Tech in an effort to promote Remember Serve Learn, a new initiative by VT Engage.
Vick was an offensive guard from 1995 to 1999 and was a key component when Tech began its rise to prominence, helping the team to four consecutive bowl games and two consecutive Big East championships. He served as team captain and was nominated All-Big East his final year.
After graduating with degrees in Sociology and Family Child Development, Vick tested the NFL and AFL waters before turning his attention to his self-proclaimed true calling: helping young people achieve success.
"Back when I was young, all I would tell people I planned on doing was being an NFL football player. Simply put, I was egocentric," said Vick.
...
"I look back at the times when I was living in Foxridge while attending Tech and playing video games and talking about jump shots or shoes and realize that I could have made a lot better usage of my life then," said Vick.
...
When I graduated, there was a little over 200 there receiving their degrees with me. Pregnancies, drugs, trouble with the law, deaths and a variety of other reasons were the cause of this attrition," said Vick.
"I see the struggle still happening, these kids with the same talent I had getting lost. This is my motivation for getting back and changing it."
In 2007, Vick was named Director of Student Development for the Manassas-based College Prep World, an enterprise he helped create. The company focuses on determining the best colleges for student-athletes who plan on continuing education, helps them achieve scholarships and also gives clients a few lessons on money management, interviewing skills and resume-building skills, things Vick considers imperative for youth.
As a man who has experienced success, struggle and failure himself, Vick couples that understanding with the time he spent in the classroom and on the field at Virginia Tech when working with younger people.
"The sacrifices I made are benefiting me now," said Vick. "Sometimes when I'm working with kids who've ran into trouble, there could be a room with four gang members, six kids on probation and a couple of runners, and they don't want to hear you. Just like when I had to go up against Miami, I have to go against this now. Except rather than different colored jerseys, the opponent is resistance and burnout. I use the same techniques I learned on the field and apply them to helping break through to these kids that deep down actually want you to help them."
Vick works tirelessly to volunteer and support those around him. He dislikes the labels placed on kids, like that of being 'at-risk,' because he fears that this only leads to judgment, and often it doesn't capture the full story of an individual.
"You always hear about how a lot of kids from broken homes are 'at-risk' because of the situation they've grown up in, but what about the girl that lives with her parents in a gated community that suffers from depression and cuts herself? She's at as much risk as anyone else, and deserves to be helped as well," said Vick.
