the advent of the vision
the scope of the vision
In January 1999 Greg Frankson attended the State of the World Forum for Emerging Leaders in Monterrey, Mexico. He was privileged enough to learn about the need for strong youth leadership from world leaders such as Jody Williams, Vincente Fox and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. He was so moved by this experience and the youth he met from all over the world that he decided to dedicate his life to community improvement.
Upon his return to Canada he completed his studies and began planning leadership initiatives designed to improve the lives of Canadian youth. After relocating to Ottawa, Greg became a performance poet and quickly became a committed member of the spoken word community. He is an accredited anti-discrimination facilitator and has participated in or led numerous community initiatives.
Whether it’s Greg Frankson or Ritallin working with you, his mission remains clear: presenting the vision that inspires others to positively change the world.
