Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.
EnvisionWith.Me will positively benefit society by providing teenage visionaries with the opportunity to transform their dreams into a reality. Visions that grow into startup businesses will boost our economy, and raise awareness of the social visionary community, encouraging other visionaries to dream, be creative, and take action. With the introduction of the online visionary university, we will provide free entrepreneurial resources and exercises, accessible by teenage visionaries all over the world. Everyone is born a visionary, but not all visionaries are interested in starting their own business. Visionaries that logon to visionary university will learn about the characteristics of a visionary and creatively entrepreneurial people. This will allow students to effectively select a future career choice or passion. Academic editions of our visionary curriculum will be available for purchase by school districts, organizations, or clubs that are interested in incorporating creative lessons into their learning environment.
Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.
We've partnered with 6 high schools in the USA to implement Visionary Clubs for the upcoming 2014-2015 school year. Originally launched online in 2012, as a professional network, EnvisionWith.Me quickly gained over 200 visionaries dedicated to pursuing their visions with unconventional passion. It was so mesmerizing, we had to put our professional platform on hold to publish something radically different. Visionary Clubs are at the forefront of a young education revolution. They provide students with a voice in a system that is not designed to take input from students. Implementing common core, lowering college loans, exempting SAT/ACT scores, etc., have not fixed the broken education system. Thankfully, our program is revolutionizing the way we approach learning in the 21st century. This will result in millions of Zuckerberg, Jobs, and Disney like minds in the future.
Spread Strategies: Moving forward, what are the main strategies for scaling impact?
Everyone is born a visionary and with the capacity to make positive change in the world. Later this fall, we plan to expand Visionary Clubs globally. Select students who absolutely love the Visionary Club program will have the opportunity to become a Visionary Officer and operate their own Visionary Club. The training program we have put together for rising Visionary Officers via the Online Alumni Network is pretty incredible. The flexible curriculum is a two week training course that covers 14 recommended goals for helping teens with launching their dreams.
