cropped-tgim-website-logo.jpgHere at TGIM, we’re in the business of creating tomorrow’s writers …today! We are an innovative publishing house that focuses on empowering communities and impacting individuals on a global scale by developing and implementing programs that equip our next generation of leaders with tools to impact global problems. These tools, like Writing for the Soul Workshop™ provide direct methods to empower individuals and communities to solve the educational, financial and social challenges they face every day.

WFTSW Small LogoWriting for the Soul Workshop™ is a vibrant program that invokes a passion for writing, resources for healing, and skills for a lifetime while providing proven curricula that offer hope and tools to change the world they live in. Too many of the world’s most disadvantaged children grow up without the skills needed to thrive in the twenty-first century, or a hope for the future. This includes children right here in America.

Inequality in education contributes to making the inequalities in wealth, income, opportunity and power even greater. We learned during the early stages of development in 2011, that Writing for the Soul Workshop™ greatly reduced these inequalities in communities where local area youth had access to the program. It was obvious that this program needed to be accessed by youth and young adults everywhere. Eric L. Jones, Sr., creator of Writing for the Soul Workshop™ successfully replicated the program in 2013 through collaborations with educators, psychologists, sociologists, clergymen and business consultants around the world.

In today’s world, it doesn’t matter whether you are an individual, a business, or a non-profit organization; everyone wants to get the most out of every dollar they spend.  We look for great sales, take generic medications, and buy store brands instead of name brands.  When we need services performed, we call around, check prices, and look for the best deals.

On the other hand, there are things that we will not compromise on.  When we have a medical issue, we don’t look for the least expensive doctor, we look for the best.  We remember the adage “You get what you pay for.”  And so when it is important, our focus shifts from looking for a deal to looking for the best.  When we know that a certain provider or brand is the best, the money spent is an investment, and ensures that we get what we need.

When new and innovative product and services are available, others rush to imitate, trying to gain customers and market share with bargain basement pricing, or by claiming to be an “authorized provider” when they are not.  As the creator and developer of Writing for the Soul Workshop™, TGIM Digital Publishing works hard to ensure that this doesn’t happen to our services or our brand.  Our participants and our program providers are far too important to allow any substandard experience, or one not governed by the rigorous certification and ongoing processes we have established.

To ensure consistency and success for every Writing for the Soul Workshop ™, TGIM Digital Publishing has created the Accelerated Program for Readiness, Interaction and Leadership, or A.P.R.I.L.©   Any person or group must have successful completion and continued execution of  A.P.R.I.L.©  to become and maintain their status as a certified Writing for the Soul Workshop™ program provider.  On this, we do not compromise.

As a parent, a participant, or as an organization approached to offer Writing for the Soul Workshop™, it is imperative to ensure you are attending our program with a Certified Provider.  If you are approached as an organization about offering the program by someone claiming to be affiliated with the program, or offering the program without being certified through TGIM Digital Publishing and A.P.R.I.L.©, do not accept.  At no point will we offer our certification program for free, nor do we allow our certified Program Providers to offer certification to other organizations.  The outstanding results of Writing for the Soul Workshop™, and its impact on participants are the obvious reasons that organizations select our Workshop; A.P.R.I.L.©  ensures consistency in those results, and provides ongoing support and networking for all organizations that offer Writing for the Soul Workshop™.

Today, Writing for the Soul Workshop™ is experiencing exponential growth in Africa, Asia, Australia and here in North America. Youth in these countries that are accessing our curriculum are becoming better writers …better readers. Because education is a shared global value, our program is proof that we can improve it by working together despite our differences and across country lines. An educator in Agusan del Sur, Philippines shared the impact  of Writing for the Soul Workshop™ when her students accessed our program. Here’s what she said:

We would ask that any organization approached to offer this program in a way not consistent with this contact TGIM Digital Publishing immediately.  As a parent or participant, if you have any questions about the programming that you are receiving, feel free to ask to see the organizations current A.P.R.I.L.©  Certificate, or contact TGIM to ensure that you are attending a genuine Writing for the Soul Workshop™ Program.

As always, we are committed to providing a life impacting experience for our participants and our Program Providers.  Our program is packed with WOW factors, and we strive to offer the best programming available to our participants. We can only do that with a certification process, and vigilance that anyone associated with our brand is meeting our rigorous standards.  Help us ensure this innovative and amazing program continues to meet our high expectations.

“Just like the organizations we certify to offer Writing for the Soul Workshop™, TGIM is certified to offer the program as well. Because TGIM offers the very program that I created, we understand the key to our success: knowing our customers’ needs. Offering the program also allowed TGIM to test and calibrate Writing for the Soul Workshop™ in Real Time as I worked on a solution to offer the program everywhere. The grassroots support it secured allowed TGIM to successfully replicate Writing for the Soul Workshop™ and all the programs it gave birth to using a certification program I named A.P.R.I.L. (Accelerated Program for Readiness, Interaction & Leadership) -Eric L. Jones, Sr.
