“Google Hangouts is used as the platform where world-known speakers serve as catalysts for public high school students in the name of Global Deeds.”
The Global Deeds Speaker Series will be taking place on September 4th 2014 at 9:30 a.m. EST. This virtual event will use Google Hangouts to showcase the participation of a series of very prominent speakers who will share their highly inspirational stories and entrepreneurial advise to a significant number of high school students across the nation live. This event will be available online for the general public to participate via the Global Deeds website. Among the invitees are Tim MacDonald, Ayelet Baron, Jairek Robbins, Shaka Senghor, Cassandra Lin, Matthew Talbot and “The Thrillionaire” Nik Halik. As their mission statement points out, the goal is youth empowerment.
“Global Deeds empowers selected youth to develop the skill set needed for personal and career success. We are a social enterprise devoted to disrupting the cycle of poverty among today’s youth by identifying at-risk adolescents, creating a customized support system with educational and employment opportunities, and enabling students to reach their potential as scholars and high-achieving citizens. With our collaborative network of corporate sponsors and advocates, we will cultivate enthusiasm in the next generation and ultimately reduce poverty rates in the Global Deeds community and beyond.”
The goal of this online event is to disseminate cutting edge personal, educational and business strategies for teenagers. Topics will include: the power of habit and positive thinking, social advocacy, entrepreneurship, and collaboration. Each session will start with a short introductory video highlighting Global Deeds' mission, which will be followed by the introduction of the works of a particular speaker, and it will culminate with a conversation with the moderator and a Q&A session. To supplement the speaker series, an online workshop will be made available and have more explicit training goals involving career readiness and personality assessments, promoting values like honesty, positivity, and hard work as the "bridge" to success.
