Stewart Perrilliat

title

Founder and Executive Director, Board of Directors

A native of Oakland, CA, Stewart grew up in a community that was plagued with a number of challenging socio-economic ills. He escaped the lures of the streets and became a Sergeant with the United States Marine Corp, and subsequently Founder and CEO of Perrilliat Enterprises, a general contracting and engineering firm based in Northern California.


Stewart began his ministry call as a street evangelist in 1995. He is a graduate of the San Francisco Theological Seminary, with a Masters degree in Theological Studies, and is an ordained clergy member at the Allen Temple Baptist church.  Stewart is a single father to a teenage daughter, and teenage son.

The Man 2 Man program was conceived in 2007 by Stewart at Ohlone College in Fremont, CA. Originally established to provide life skills and social negotiation strategies training to male students at-risk of leaving higher education, it quickly expanded into additional workshop offerings. More recently, Stewart's ongoing work for his Doctorate thesis for the San Francisco Theological Seminary, on Disadvantaged Youth in Urban Communities, has included in-depth research into the Father Absence issue and its consequences. 


Man 2 Man evolved to create the Fatherhood Advocacy Support and Training (FAST) program--devoted to strengthening families one father at a time. Stewart's passion is helping young men overcome barriers to achieving social, personal, professional, and academic success. This call has become the central focus of his life.

As facilitator, Stewart received Alameda County Domestic Violence Facilitator, Allen Temple Baptist Church Health and Social Services Ministry Leader, and The Riley Center’s Domestic Violence Training certifications. Mr. Perrilliat is also a member of First 5 Fathers Corps in Alameda CA.
