Why Do we give?

Where Your Treasure Is your
heart will be also.

Paradigm 360º is anchored in three core values. Belief in the client, sustainable change comes from within and leaders take responsibility. It's our goal to help bridge the gap in areas of rural and intercity poverty, workforce mobility and K-12 education. A portion of our corporate earnings contribute to the work we perform in the local marketplace. We are also very thankful for the large number of Paradigm 360º Coaches and corporate partners who support our vision to help offset the cost of high-level programing for youth enrolled in our Young Entrepreneurs program and the adult learners in fragile communities who are learning new skillsets and personally developing themselves on a corporate level. Our ultimate goal is to
"Build World-Class Leaders One Conversation At A Time!"

The Men & Women Of Promise Conference 

Paradigm 360º host a yearly leadership conference for more than 300 high school youth annually. Students are bussed from their school to a full service executive conference center where they spend the day with six national speakers and more than 60 Paradigm 360º Coaches and Volunteers. Each year the students visit a different theme on leadership and personal development while being coached throughout the day by adult table coaches. In addition to learning the youth enjoy eating lunch with corporate volunteers, dancing and creating leadership  podcast on demand.

 fine Dining 

Paradigm 360º Young Entrepreneurs are exposed to corporate opportunities that expose them to experiences that may not come their way everyday. In December of 2019 we hosted several young people to an matinee experience at the Nut Cracker and the evening ended with a lesson on Fine Dinning at Ruth Chris Steak House, In Uptown Charlotte. These opportunities will prepare our students for future success in the area of social skills and proper etiquette.

The Summit

Paradigm 360 Partnered with New Beginnings Church and Dream Builders University out of Cincinnati, Ohio   providing 400 youth over a span of two days an opportunity to take part in a social emotional learning conference called the Summit! The Summit is our middle school learning experience designed to help students understand the negative and positive sides of the internet and to spend a day on personal vision casting to prepare them for their future high school experience. Students are bussed to a learning center for the day, provided lunch, academics and mentored by a National Speaker LaMarque Ward from Cincinnati, Ohio.
