Mission Transformation was established.

At the age of 25, Julius was inspired following the loss of his father, Benjamin Bayone, Sr., a hardworking, charismatic man who provided the best he could for his seven children. With the support of parents, school staff, and community volunteers, he conceptualized Mission Transformation acting on his belief that there was something he could do to make a difference. So, he started speaking at school district meetings, organizations, and companies on topics such as mentoring, academics, and civic engagement.
