Please check over at Projectalpha1.org for the latest updates on the Realizing Potentials project during our early stage development and sign up for our email updates.
We are pleased to announce that the Realizing Potentials project is live and active in Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, Mexico it’s testing and development location.
Realizing Potentials is a development project that will help young people with identified potential to be future leaders in every sector of society.
Initially it will act to motivate and encourage them and help remove barriers that are in their way. It will match the young people with the skills, experience and resources of active and semi-retired in a one-to-one mentoring arrangement. That portion of the program will be termed MentoringU and may eventually be spun off to be a stand alone program.
The project and it’s leadership will always think globally and locally at the same time, and will be solutions focused with a one person at a time philosophy. It will be people focused primarily, but flexible to act as well in areas such as environmental protection and animal rescue and protection or others once the people resources are in place.
In it’s early phase the project will be located in Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, Mexico and Winnipeg, Canada. Young people from 13-29 will be considered for inclusion. Sports programs, language, cultural and technology training and access to micro funding for entrepreneurial or community initiatives will also be part of the program.
“After six years providing executive and day-to-day leadership and management at a Winnipeg non profit that utilized a social enterprise model to create real employment in support of mental health in the community, and a government and a private sector careers earlier, this is the kind of program I can get behind 100% and lead and impact young people’s lives throughout the world”, said Robert (Bob) Rempel, initiator of the program.
“The appeal of this program to both participants and future funders and supporters, I believe”, said Rempel, “is that we are going to work to develop individuals to their full potential if they become motivated enough to join with us, and we are going to resurrect the talents and training of late career individuals or semi-retired individual and involve them in truly meaningful ways.
People connections is the essence of a true sustainable non profit organization, my experience tells me,” said Rempel.
Further announcements about programs and participants will be made during the early growth and test phase expected to last until November 1, 2015.
