"Who Stole My Future?" Scholarship Tour,

Jacksonville, Florida, United States Jacksonville, Florida, United States
One Sponsor Confirmed
Wells Fargo

  • About the event

    This is a 90-minute daytime (or evening) event, that you would sponsor as part of our 10-school - 'Who Stole My Future?' Tour. I illustrate topics in the book such as building self-esteem in our teens, how to effectively communicate with them, and other ways to foster your child's growth and keep them on the road to becoming life-changing individuals.

    Together, you will be a part of the celebration with these impactful tour events as I award deserving students in the form of SCHOLARSHIPS. It’s an incredible opportunity and one that will fill up very quickly at no cost to the school. (The Principal and School board will LOVE you!)

    Why should you sponsor?

    Event tickets can display your logo and have a suggested price on them of $25.00 – increasing the value of your involvement simply because the tickets are given FREE. It will appear to the ticket recipients that YOU are paying for their tickets!

    You most certainly will get a display table at the events and depending on your level of involvement, you may be allowed to say a few words before and / or after my speech - AND – if you are the EXCLUSIVE SPONSOR - I will invite you on stage to present the winners their Scholarships - which can be CO-BRANDED with Your name and my book.

    Everyone wins! The school wins because you sponsored an educational event that costs them virtually nothing. The students and their families win because they get valuable information to boost their self-esteem and become a part of something huge, including the opportunity to win a scholarship. I win because I sell books. You win because of the massive, focused exposure aimed directly at your exact market.

    Micah D. Barnes

    Micah Barnes grew up in Gary, Indiana, a city once known for its violence and dismal economic climate.
    He saw many of his peers squander their futures. Some were incarcerated, and others lost their way. Most became productive members of society, like teachers, coaches, pastors, athletes, and loving fathers.

    Before becoming an author and motivational speaker, Micah Barnes worked as a video editor in a busy newsroom in Jacksonville, Florida. In the summer of 2013, he repeatedly saw videos of mothers crying over the murder of their sons. Boys and girls wept over the senseless deaths of their brothers and sisters. Neighbors shed more tears when they realized someone had intruded upon their peace of mind. Their hopes for a successful community were shattered. He constantly saw victims’ social media pictures, alongside mugshots of young criminals. After a particularly emotionally draining day at work, a photographer said, “Micah, somebody’s gotta do something about these murders.”

    Those words never left him. Over the next week, Micah contemplated ways to inject hope into his community. Since that time, he has spoken to numerous experts, gleaning hope from what he learned from them. In those conversations, he learned various ways to ensure that our next generation is positive, productive, and empowered to do great things.

    Now, Micah spreads his positive messages by serving Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Northeast Florida. He mentors young men, encouraging them to exceed the world’s expectations. Whether he’s tutoring elementary and middle school students or just talking to them, he tries to inspire them to do amazing things.
