|1,000 Brain and Brand Leaders|
A personal mission of myself to develop 1,000 critical thinking students who give back and pay forward the learning from my brain and bran leadership work.
For 1,000 students to inspire and equip 100 pupils each from their communities with critical thinking and personal branding skills. The inspired 1,000 students will share their learning with 100 students that will lead to 100,000 awakened leaders who pursue their best selves and seek to reshape personal and community narratives- exposing other learners to personal possibility and specific opportunity through an additional professional volunteer links.
For the past twenty years I've worked with youth leaders from America to South Africa and I've identified patterns and models that work in transferring leadership capacity. As a public thought leader with published works, partnering with schools who share content has proven to be a simple, low cost way of getting students who are eager to learn to transform their lives and others in their community. In the photo above is a pic of myself and Khanyisile Morudu who I met on a program like I have outlined here and when we met she was an orphan but through leadership development and partners in her community she made it into the Oprah school and is now in her final year of studying a computer coding degree.
The structure of the 1,000 Brain and Brand program will be as follows.
Partner with Schools- Identify schools in challenged communities
Partner with Volunteers- Seek volunteers to purchase books and also mentor.
Partner with Publisher- Receive books from publisher at discount and give to kids for content.
Develop Students- Use published book (Personal Brand Intelligence) as a developmental guide.
Monitor Program at Schools- Set up program for the leaders to share in their schools in after school sessions.
Armabrand Volunteers- Seek professional volunteers through my professional network to link students who have similarly aligned career ambitions to spend 12hours with over a 6month period www.armabrand.org
Visit identified communities and schools two to three times a month and work with students and teachers to develop the program which will be a 3phase PBQ program extracted from the book. The PBQ learning based on book will be taught in 3hours, an hour for each phase. After the 3phases of personal brand intelligence training, students will be shown how to take the content for the book and share it with their schools in group sessions. Students will also have access to me virtually and in one on one sessions. More info about the book on my website www.timothymaurice.com
This is a 3year program which will be rolled out starting with Ikageng in Orlando West, which is an after school program and leadership ministry which I have partnered with for many years www.ikageng.org.za Program is running from March 2017 to March 2020 and has already begun. If you would like to visit Ikageng with me, email me email@example.com
The success of this program will be from the community and school partners who follow through with the learning alongside the student leaders so when myself and volunteers are not there, the program continues to run. We will develop online communities for feedback and monitoring to ensure measurable results. The longterm goal is to have an app that tracks and measures the outcomes. I'll work closely with 333 leaders a year, approx 30 a month, over 3years, we'll reach out 1,000 students target. (Note- I'll reserve 100 students personal engagement from those who are recommended to me directly or hear about the program from the public or media)
Two ways to get involved:
Purchase Books for Students- Personal Brand Intelligence retails for R250 in book stores but we can get the book for R200. By purchasing the books, this enables me to pay for logistics, program development and program admin and monitoring. The first book purchase goal is 1,000 books, but long term, I would like all 100,000 students reached to have books- I believe that much in the body of work.
Mentoring in the Brand of Brothers & Sisters Program- I will identify students who are interested in various careers and seek professional volunteers for shadowing, vocational exposure, soft skills development and peer listening sharing.
Invest in Books by paying into Account- Standard Bank, Timothy Maurice & Assoc., 220424209, Branch- Sandton City (018105). Please buy increments of 50 to 100 - easier to distribute and for printing... or whichever amount you can afford to invest. Send proof of payment to firstname.lastname@example.org
I will take no funds from schools are partners. It is completely volunteer. My dedication to writing and publishing critical thinking leadership work enables me to volunteer in the program. Thanks in advance for your participation and look forward to continuing to make a difference together. Please contact me directly to get involved...
