Strong Youth, Inspired School
Barry is exactly what we needed for our kindness week/ pink day assembly. He reminded all of us that we really matter and that “kindness is cool.” Many students from both junior and senior high voiced their appreciation about his message and said that Barry was able to make them laugh and feel good about themselves. — Sharon Brenton, Guidance Counsellor
Epic Engage™ engages youth and education; and loves it. We are a leadership development company that helps educators, students and youth…
- educate and lead with character, strength and joyful excellence
- unite strong, diverse cultures of purpose, talent and capacity
- inspire learning cultures of flourishing creativity and growth.
At Epic Engage™, we work with youth and those who work with youth. Building cultures of capacity through education and learning, our focal point is the spirit of youth and how we engage at school… to flourish and prosper. Rather than harnessing youth; we imagine unleashing them. Now, with that in mind, imagine:
- leadership development that lights a fire
- advancing character at school, family, work and community
- building excellence through capacity and creativity
- engaging both unity and diversity for ultimate advantage
… with a powerful focus on education. Imagine not only bridging the gap, but building a powerful platform to engage youth on campus, at home, at work and in community. Inspired by the global work of The Virtues Project™ and our own deep and broad knowledge, skill and experience… we bring our all.
Our ALL includes, but is not limited to:
Let’s talk about diverseCITIES™. This is our Epic School keynote and breakout work. It is our youth leadership and mentorship work. We recognize that colleges, schools and youth centers are highly diverse communities. Center, school and campus life can be incredible… and incredibly diverse. That is real. That is cool. Diversity is a strategic and powerful advantage in nature, work and life; and on campus. diverseCITIES™ is designed for youth and educators at school and college who are engaging diversity in the classroom and beyond. We get real… and practical; responding to and embracing the advantages and coolness of diversity. Yes, we explore the new and real cool; difference as strength. The session is an experience of leadership and empowerment around the challenges and opportunities of diversity; and is fun. Oh, it is fun! In this 3-6 hour session (it is expandable), everyone is introduced to:
- 7 attitudes of engagement in and out of class, and
- 5 styles of engagement for school and campus life
The session can be a PD model for teachers or run for students, or both. It identifies an approach to engagement that is a hybrid of methodology and art. The material has the intent to build on both personal and campus success; with real world application. Bottom line… it gets us getting it… moving forward together, stronger.
Our work is character driven and fun. We call it joyful excellence. We offer keynotes, seminars, workshops, development days, programs and courses in support of youth and educators and youth leaders. We engage speaking, dialoguing, singing, dancing, music, cartooning, video and gaming. Oh yes, we bring it all!
Barry Lewis Green. You might find someone smaller. You might even find someone better looking. But you will NEVER find anyone more passionate about their work than Barry. Barry is pretty darn awesome, actually. Rarely have I encountered anyone with anywhere near his level of enthusiasm for and commitment to what he does. He’s ALWAYS upbeat and optimistic, able to see the good in everyone and everything. He’s honest and sincere, and has both the desire and ability to find common ground and consensus. In all sincerity, I can say that, as a facilitator, speaker, coach, consultant, whatever the role, Barry IS what he appears to be – a pro. And actually, he isn’t all that bad looking. 🙂 — Rob Cashin, College of the North Atlantic
Barry Lewis Green suggests that “Youth are not the future. They are the present molding the future.” That is what Barry calls Idealism 2.0™. It is all about youth and the young at heart learning and working together to create extraordinary results in companies, on campuses, and throughout communities; to foster true commonwealth… as uncommon wealth; and we speak and deliver on that!
We can help connect the dots for youth, educators and employers. Idealism 2.0™ is about education; what Barry calls learnership. He is an educator. He has been for over 20 years. He works with educators and students to engage the magic and contribution and power of learning, both purposeful and creative. Barry loves working with youth, and the feeling is apparently mutual. Indeed, Barry has spent those 20+ years as a college educator and has spoken to college, high school and middle school audiences alike… with rave reviews!!! He connects and “sees” them. He believes that it is our engagement and working with and learning from youth that is our best solution at work, school and community.
Yes, Barry and EPIC are passionate about youth and education. We will work on campus and in community centers and beyond. Wherever. We bring our programs and services to the world of youth. We lead, learn and have fun doing it. Something magical happens. We present and train on campus… primary, junior high and high school… and college. We engage. We truly do. Drawing upon the global work of The Virtues Project™ and our own extensive experience, Epic Engage™ works with youth and educators where they are and shines an incredible spotlight on character, capacity and creativity alike.
