The organisers of the 1,000 Man March Outreach have launched a new website.
Guests and sponsors, along with the board gathered earlier this month at the National Gallery for the unveiling and presentation of the site.
Phil Jackson, who is one of the board members for the 1,000 Man March Outreach, gave the overview presentation of the website, in addition to a motivational speech on the values and goals of the 1,000 Man March Outreach. He spoke to how the initiative has changed him.
“In society we often measure a man’s success by his position, title, academic achievements or how wealth he is,” he said. “As men we are not regularly evaluated at our performance of being a father, husband or the success of our home life. After signing the 1,000 Man March pledge, I gained renewed purpose and focus on engaging with my children and strengthening the relationship with my wife. I have made a commitment to be the best father and husband possible.”
Ormond Williams, president of Cayman National, challenged the 1,000 Man March Outreach to partner with local not-for-profits and existing metoring programmes. He reiterated the organisation’s goals of aligning with other local mentoring programmes to make a difference in Cayman without recreating any efforts that were already in place.
“There is strength in numbers and strength in partnerships. I challenge you to find partnerships with other organisations in the Cayman community,” he said.
Another sponsor, Wesley Howell, owner of FSH Design Ltd. took part in one of the website’s main features by signing an online pledge form during the ceremony – agreeing to the 14 declarations of the 1,000 Man March Pledge. The website offers a digital record for all who have signed the pledge electronically. It also has a comment section for those who want to share experiences, ask for help or to just leave a comment.
“The board came to the conclusion that it was important to offer an interactive experience for the community as a whole.
The 1,000 Man March Outreach now includes videos, comments, Facebook, online pledging and resources. It is a real resource tool that can be utilized by the community and that was our goal. We hope to share the resources with young men to help build their character and leadership skills,” Mr. Jackson said.
The 1,000 Man March Outreach is a nondenominational kingdom-building group of men, started in 2010. The movement was founded to mentor and inspire young men by changing their mind-set and way of thinking in order to strengthen families and marriages and for men to play an active role in their families and community.
