Go for Yours was designed to be an engaging and informative resource for young people to create their own definition of success.
Writer, Erika R. McCall helps break the conventional models of living and encourages readers to create the opportunity they have been waiting for. The book is written for an audience that thrives on popular trends, in order to share amazing lessons that leave them feeling confident to achieve their dreams and handle whatever comes their way. Most importantly, it advises readers to create the opportunity they have been waiting for.
After the successful publishing of Go For Yours, Erika created the Go for Yours Leadership Academy, a series of innovative workshops and curriculum that provides each participant with the education, empowerment, opportunities, and resources needed to pursue their dream.
The first Leadership Academy was started at Julian High School in Chicago, in honor of Erika’s late cousin, Ben Gibson who was a victim of the growing violence in Chicago. From this program, a movement was born! Since inception, the Go for Yours Leadership Academy has been facilitated in various cities including Los Angeles, St. Louis, Detroit, Washington, DC.
Go For Yours looks to impact the lives of people from all walks of life through one simple message— Go For Yours! Follow our journey as this campaign continues to grow from books to a nonprofit foundation and a platform for individuals pursuing their dream.
The mission of the Go for Yours Foundation is to develop the next generation of leaders (ages 13-21) and provide them with guidance, resources and financial support to pursue their dreams.
