Georgia Youth Preparing for The MonuMENTAL Experience

I am so excited to be a part of a new group of young community innovators who are making some major things happen in the youth and young adult communities in Georgia and the U.S. This group is called “MobileAyes“, which is a is a collaborative multimedia platform of inspirational content produced to  educate and mobilize youth and young adults for uplifting local community engagement. Our first event is at the end of August, when we will take a group of young people from Atlanta and Savannah to the MLK Memorial celebration August 27-29. Check out the story below of our press conference with the mayor of Savannah, Georgia.

Local Community Leaders Celebrate & Support Upcoming Youth Journey to Washington DC

Savannah, GA — On Wednesday, July 27th at 1:00 PM, Savannah civic and faith community leaders will gather together at City Hall. The gathering will include a press conference to highlight a planned bus expedition, scheduled for August 27th-29th that will guide youth and young adults on a transformative journey from Savannah to Washington, DC. The trip features the Dedication Ceremony of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial on Sunday, August 28th and tours of monuments to the American people and our federal government. This hands-on civic “mobile learning” experience will allow the emerging leaders of Savannah to celebrate with our nation and recognize the powerful legacy of an extraordinary Georgia-born citizen. The youth and young adults on the journey will represent the broad spectrum of our community across interfaith, multicultural and multi-ethnic lines. Our shared stories will lay a solid foundation of friendships to build understanding and a healthy future for the City of Savannah.

Many Savannah-based leaders and organizations have affirmed their presence at the press conference which will include: Office of the Mayor Otis Johnson, Chatham County Commission, Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance, A. Phillip Ralph Institute, First African Baptist Church, Roman Diocese of Savannah, and many other community representatives.

The Journey to Washington will consist of “mobile” MonuMENTAL interactive learning experience, allowing participants to engage the legacy, history and accomplishments of the American Civil Rights Movement. In addition, youth will create conversations that capture key issues impacting the development of youth and young adults within our community (jobs, entrepreneurship, knowledge economy, education, community health & wellness, and technology) as we begin to craft a comprehensive vision for responsible progress.

Additional details about the upcoming youth and young adults journey will be provided during the press conference by trip organizers YouthUniverse and The H.O.P.E. Institute.

“This is our hope. This is the faith that I go back to the South with. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope.”

And A Child Shall Lead Them…

Child prodigy Adora Svitak says the world needs “childish” thinking: bold ideas, wild creativity and especially optimism. Kids’ big dreams deserve high expectations, she says, starting with grownups’ willingness to learn from children as much as to teach.

If you desire to maximize the potential of your time, talents and ideas, find some people with whom you can cooperatively pursue significant opportunities. Exponential results are awaiting your business!

Thrive on purpose,

Paul Wilson, Jr.

Youth in Revolt

When people are disrespected, disregarded, or dismissed for a long period of time, they eventually will do desperate things. I believe this is even more true with youth and young adults. In addition to the unrest currently happening in Egypt, over the past 18 months we have seen riots – often led by young and very passionate leaders – break out  in Tunisia, Iran, France, and other places.

I know there are a multitude of complicated factors that come into play with each of these countries. However one common thread in all of them is a sense of economic desperation. The opportunity to work gives young (and old) people a sense of dignity and the possibility of upward mobility. Without those opportunities the walls of poverty and despair seem close in and suffocate the hope out of people. Where there is no vision – hope for the future – people die from the inside out. Furthermore, youthful passion that is not channeled in a purposeful and positive direction will turn dangerous.

How does this relate to the U.S. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), 51.1% of Americans between the ages of 16 and 24 years old were unemployed in July 2010. This marks the first time since 1948, when the government first started collecting this data, that less than half of all U.S. youth were employed in July. And this is not just an American problem. Check this out from the Wall Street Journal (April 14, 2010):

But rising youth unemployment is not just an American problem, points out  a report from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. Across the 30 OECD countries, there are nearly 15 million unemployed workers aged 15-24 — four million more than at the end of 2007. In France and Italy, one in four young workers are unemployed; in Spain, 40% are jobless.

Youth unemployment is a global powderkeg that is just waiting for the right spark to turn a bad situation even worse, which we can see happening in Tunisia, Egypt, and other places around the world. The approaches world governments use to create jobs apparently are not working. I believe we need a greater emphasis on entrepreneurship in the U.S. and throughout the world. More focus, money, and education needs to be invested in entrepreneurship-based programs for younger and older unemployed workers.

We can no longer downplay the major roadblocks to success that the youth of this generation face today. Otherwise, the images that we see coming out of Egypt this week could be replayed in other countries around the world, and maybe even the United States.

What are some things you think could be done to alleviate youth unemployment?

Helping a “Lost Generation” Find Direction

Recently, Businessweek wrote an article, “Lost Generation“, that lamented the negative and potential long-term impact of the current job crisis on youth and young adults. According to the article in the U.S., “the unemployment rate for 16- to 24-year-olds has climbed to more than 18%, from 13% a year ago.” Wow! That number staggering.

As I digested the article, one of the first thoughts I had was how do we better prepare this generation to succeed in this economy? How do we stimulate personal economies at a time when the national economy is still stagnant?

I don’t believe the job situation is ever going back to the good ol’ days of 4%-5% unemployment (and if it does it will take an extremely long time). We need to stop focusing on the skills of yesteryear and shift our focus to equipping youth and young adults with the necessary skills to thrive in this new “entrepreneurial economy”.

I’m excited to be partnered with Top Flight Global Resources and Extraordinary Life Community Church to offer the Fly High Business Seminar on November 7th, 2009 in Conyers, GA. Click here for registration details.

You don’t want to miss this strategic opportunity to reposition your perspective, passions, and professional skills to thrive in the entrepreneurial economy. I’ll see you there!
