The Buddy System



Since our creation, we have expanded the vision of Senior Master Sgt. William “Buddy” Tolliver and the Special Study Group to encourage economic growth, workforce development in smart growth communities and investment in renewable energy and Hemp products.

RECON takes a social and humanitarian approach into account that the people who depend on the alienated individuals for their source of revenue will be included in our target sectors.

We have every confidence that our program meets the standard provisions of community development and supports long term recovery efforts while factoring in job placement and Cannabis related employment projects.  


Economic Empowerment Priority

RECON has addressed Cannabis infractions currently in our cities, towns and municipalities utilizing our proven method the “Buddy System” whose framework was established by William Tolliver a U.S. Veteran.
The Airman was a native of (Jersey City) New Jersey who entered the Air Force in 1955 and was a decorated Air Force Senior Master Sergeant. He distinguished himself in the performance of outstanding service to the United States Air Force.
“Buddy” earnestly believed in equal employment opportunities for all people. He spent the remainder of his life communicating the core principles which would later manifest to form the company Relevant Energy Concepts (RECON). Further information on his career can be found on Wikipedia.

RECON strives to ensure that all people affected by the war on drugs earn a living and remain gainfully employed. We accomplish these ideas through uniting those people and community groups with our corporate sponsors to provide safe, secure employment opportunities while advocating for our participant’s health and physical wellbeing.

RECON will mobilize its members to develop leaders and alleviate employment disparities while establishing a certified (Green) work force. These terms are recommended and are not required for unremitting eligibility in or with an apprenticeship program, employment fairs or any associated entity that may sponsor said programs. 

During these unprecedented times the war on drugs and COVID 19 have created a need for employment opportunities in and around the Pioneer Valley and to develop comprehensive strategies that would mitigate the affected populations who are victims from the war on drugs (cannabis) and COVID-19 likewise, returning combat soldiers, their families and others (the working poor) in primarily segregated areas of Western Massachusetts should benefit from the program as a whole.
