The Education Effect: Inspiring Youth Through Education and Leadership

Greg Wilson, Founder of The Education Effect, shares his vision to create opportunities for youth through education and leadership.

The Education Effect is a youth education program that focuses on on critical success factors that inspire youth to improve life skills, focus on their academic achievements; and, stimulate body, mind, and soul of all stakeholders involved.  The Education Effect works with students and their Champions surrounding five major areas: Academic Achievement, Leadership Development, Goal Setting, Health Equity, and Celebrating Success. TEE is based on the common belief that all things are possible through education and leadership.

A Message from Founder Greg Wilson

It’s so simple!

EVERYONE SEEMS TO HAVE AN ANSWER OR COMMENT ABOUT HOW TO HELP OUR YOUTH AND help them PREPARE FOR THE FUTURE, IF IT WAS SO EASY WHY ARE WE STILL HERE?

Our community, and without a doubt our child’s life, is ruled by technology. Gone are the days where children played outside until the lights came on, or they actually “needed” to have The Talk and before we’d question our child’s mental state if we saw them playing with a toy plastic gun and cops & robbers.

The Education Effect is comprised of people that believe if we come together as one parent for every child, we can change the future. We don’t know everything and it’s impossible for working parents, or even a single parent household, to have all the answers when our children can get to information faster than they can say what the need.

Our idea is to give our children a Community Village Club that is safe, a resource and an avenue directly to the future of their dreams. By meeting them where they are, through technology, we can help each other out by sharing our time and knowledge and begin getting back to the days where we played until the street lights came on.

The core element of The Education Effect’s initiative is the ‘Personal Commitment Contract’ between a student, their champions and their future.

Remember — it’s so simple, we just need to come together.

All my best,

Greg Wilson

Founder/President
