Entrepreneur Camp This 3 week, 27 hour short course for young Costa Ricans aimed at empowering the students to evaluate and test their ideas and build a plan for launching their businesses.

Seminars We have collaborated with a variety of community groups to present these seminars: ‘You May Be A Forerunner’, ‘Living An Authentic Life’, ‘Discover Your Strengths’, ‘Community Leaders’ Seminar’, ‘Find Your Amazing’ and others.

Events  “Behind Closed Doors: The Human Rights Crisis in North Korea” was produced by TFP in collaboration with CIGI (Centre For Governance Innovation) and the Balsillie School of International Affairs, part of the University of Waterloo. Escapees from North Korea and experts from around the world provided a powerful perspective on the past and an up-to-date view of the new regime of Kim Jong Un.

The program provides the listener with the opportunity to learn from and be inspired by successful forerunners making positive change.

Forerunners We interviewed forerunners who were making positive change in a variety of fields. These articles reveal what a forerunner is and can be and were published in Canadian newspapers for several years The articles are available on this site at “Forerunners In Action”.

The Forerunner Project exists to encourage, mentor, and assist individuals to passionately lead, innovate, reform, create and advocate in politics, education, religion, science, business, government, arts, media and entertainment.

We call these people “forerunners” because they are the sages of this age and the forerunners of an age-to-come. Our mission is to ‘bring the forerunners together’, and to inspire, encourage, and cheer them on for they will define our future.

Our Active Projects

The Forerunner International School

We see many people wandering aimlessly through life never realizing their dreams or understanding and using their talents to accomplish something uniquely their own.

The Forerunner School helps people discover and use their talents and mitigate their weaknesses. It helps people harness their passions to create tangible purpose that provides direction that informs their life decisions, unlocks their potential and provides pleasure and significance in their life. We teach our ‘learners’ that the  “natural flow” of life leads to making a significant contribution to better our world.

Licensed Teaching – Business Opportunity
Over the last 30+ years we have developed an enormous amount of quality, original teaching material which is in high demand. We are actively pursuing business partners via a License Agreement  who can spearhead the delivery and development of these educational products for private and public education systems world-wide.

Values Project
Character education is a missing component in most of our schools. The “V Project” provides music based lesson plans for grades 1-8 that encourage the development of important life skills and values. LISTEN >>

 

Forerunner Living and Learning Community
We are actively pursuing a strategic partner (developer) with whom to explore the mutual benefits of building a seniors’ community and permanent location for the Forerunner School on one site.
