The John Maxwell Team Global Youth Initiative is an international movement comprising hundreds of no cost community events with topics ranging from leadership development, to anti-bullying, self-esteem and more to help the youth and teens in communities around the world thrive. Anna D. Banks, is a certified speaker, trainer, and coach in Essex County NJ and says the initiative was launched last April. Anna states, "Our goal is to reach the youth in our communities, teaching them that it's never too early to become a great leader now. As John Maxwell said, the youth of today are our leaders of tomorrow."
The former adjunct professor, for Essex and Bergen County Colleges and, says the goal of The John Maxwell Team Global Youth Initiative is to reach out to youth twice a year- in April and October. "We set our aim to reach 500,000 youth globally. John Maxwell team members all over the world are joining hands in doing that," Banks explained.
Throughout the month, Banks will be visiting different campuses discussing four main topics such as positive self-image and good character.
"Our youth need to know that they matter. Leadership starts within themselves and that they need to believe in themselves and that they are special and that they are valued," said Banks. "The third topic that we focus on is standing up and building others. So what that is about telling that that leaders don't bully and so we pick up others, we encourage others and show them that they are valued, as well."
So what made Banks get involved with such a cause? She says she believed in what Maxwell does, after all he is noted as a leadership guru. "He values the youth. The global youth initiative caught my attention because I have worked with the youth. I'm very passionate and I believe that every youth matters," she said.
