I Lead Beyond is the brainchild of Beyond Limits Institute Founder and CEO, Kyle Newman. Its aim is to ignite and empower the generation of future entrepreneurs and leaders to bring forth a thriving, just, sustainable world.
The young leaders of the future will be the ‘linchpins’ or ‘catalysts’ that facilitate change on both a local and global scale. As we wake up to the real state of the world, we recognise that the next couple of decades will be the most critical in history. A convergence of crises – poverty, inequality, economic instability, materialism, climate disruption, and ecological unravelling – are all threatening human civilisation as a whole. Amidst these widespread challenges, a record number of young people are being filled with apathy and despair, living out lives that lack meaning, purpose, or direction.
At the very same time, a groundswell of consciousness and social change is emerging globally. Young people have always been at the forefront of great movements for social change and never has this been more true than today. From schools, to communities, to the halls of power, many are waking up, standing up, and taking action like never before.
We believe that it is these young people who will become the leaders of the future and bring forth the transformation needed on a global scale to create a thriving, just, sustainable world that works for all, and the goal of the Beyond Foundation is to ‘wake up the younger generation’, and to find and equip these future leaders and entrepreneurs with the knowledge, skills and conviction to take the bold and systemic action needed to transform our whole society.
We strive to:
- Awaken in young people a clear sense of who they are, what is possible for the future, and give them a clear sense of meaning, purpose and direction to their lives. Along with an understanding of the urgent global challenges and opportunities we face, and a calling to take action.
- Empower talented young leaders and entrepreneurs with the training, mentoring, and support needed to thrive as global leaders and change agents in the 21st century.
Now is the time. Let’s make it happen!
