Defy recognizes that many former drug dealers and gang leaders can become successful, legal entrepreneurs. We “transform the hustle” of our formerly incarcerated Entrepreneurs-in-Training (EITs) by offering intensive leadership development, Shark Tank-style business plan competitions, executive mentoring, financial investment, and startup incubation. We offer our EITs a legitimate chance to succeed and equip them to become profitable entrepreneurs, stellar employees, engaged parents, and committed role models and leaders in their communities. We intentionally build life-giving, authentic community between EITs and our executive volunteers as they bond in their humanity.

In 1949, the Paramus Rotary Club became aware that the Borough of Paramus was desperately in need of an ambulance corps. Henry Vander Plaat, the first President of the Paramus Rotary Club, initiated this project.

In November of 1949, a board was appointed to begin the process, consisting of one member each from the Rotary Club, American Legion, VFW, Woman’s Club, Fire Department, and Police Department. During the early part of 1950, the Paramus Ambulance Corps was officially organized and incorporated. Mickey DePauw served as the first president of the Board. Walter Wittman donated all the legal work and put the Bylaws and Certificate of Incorporation in place.
