On return from Yorkton Saskatchewan, Scott Ward and Kigen Martin are feeling very greatful to have been able to put on a fun filled show for the local youth. Wonder was felt and smiles were shown as the performers shared their talents and passions on the stage. Scott and Kigen hope that their performance motivates and inspires the youth to follow their passions and pursue their dreams. Every individual has the potential to achieve anything they set their mind too, this is an underlying message that Scott and Kigen strive to convey. It is an absolute honour for the performers to be able to step into the lives of these extremely talented youth. They hope that they are able to create a fire in the hearts of many to become the people that they want to be. Keep dreaming and never give up.
Did you know that the Going MILES logo was created by Rap Artist, Darren Brule 10 years ago?
The Old English Font Style small letter “G” stands obviously for Going MILES. The letter also has another meaning, it is GUIDANCE against bullying of all types, suicide, violence and addiction.
Dakota House is fond of motorbikes; hence, the wings have been added for more character to the logo.
We have a lot of collectible items – customized with our logo. These items include t-shirts, stickers, caps, and more. All these are available during our events or you can soon order them online and be delivered at your doorstep.
Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Kigen Martin and I am the newest member of Going M.I.L.E.S. I discovered Magic when I was 8 years old, as soon as I began to practice and learn I became addicted. Very soon after my introduction to magic I became a walking encyclopedia of magic tricks and effects. I began performing at the age of 9, and I haven’t been able to stop since. Through magic I strive to teach the public that anything is possible, no matter what your dream may be. I have now been practicing magic for 10 years and I believe that through magical demonstrations and interactions, people can go away motivated to chase down their dream and achieve them. The wonder in the eyes of the spectators is what fuels my fire to continue to spread wonder to people worldwide. Join me as I share with you the magic that I have disscovered in life.
According to Wikipedia, Youth empowerment is a process where children and young people are encouraged to take charge of their lives. They do this by addressing their situation and then take action in order to improve their access to resources and transform their consciousness through their beliefs, values, and attitudes.
Going MILES have been to a lot of first nation communities, presenting in front of different youth groups all around Canada.
Our group consists of different artists. We have comedy hypnotist, motivational speakers, hip hop artists, magician, illusionist, native comedian, athlete, and recording artist. We use talents to bring entertainment and empowerment to our future generations.
To empower youth is to:
- Include them in decision-making processes
- Understand and implement their honest opinions and ideas
- Be willing to share your adult power and privilege in order to make the community a better place for both young people and adults alike
- Honor their voice
- Spent quality time to the future leaders
