THE SWERVE FOUNDATION
Originally, The Swerve Foundation began as a book written by, motivational performer and youth specialist, Zion Birdsong. Birdsong partnered his experience with local outreaches and community leaders to produce Swerve Expos. Using various arts, these gatherings are occasions to impart into audiences by inviting them to locate and cultivate their unique gifts as they take part in upcoming expos. Swerve Expos involve a plethora of creative arts that youth take part in i.e. painting, photography, culinary, digital, conceptual, and audio/visual arts. The original Swerve In Your Gift paperback, PDF, audiobook, musical soundtrack, and related merchandise give Birdsong the opportunity to profit and invest back into The Swerve Foundation.
Our vision: A world of individuals who uplift themselves and their environments with their gifts.
Our mission: To provide skill sets and platforms for youth to locate and cultivate their gifts.
WHO WE SERVE
Although our materials are suitable for all ages, we aspire to target the youth. We believe securing the mindsets of our youth will secure our future communities and spark change in the minds of surrounding adults as well.
What's MY gift?
Your Gift is Your Vehicle
You, my friend, are a gift. Did you know you have a gift? When people say "gift" they're often referring to a talent, skill, idea, or info. Until you can combine them and make them for-give (like a present to uplift your world), they're just talents, skills, ideas, and info. Your gift is literally the transportation to drive you to the people, places, and things (PPT's) that will connect you to the vision you have for your life. When you get a deeper understanding of "Swerve In Your Gift," your life will gain direction. This is the key to crank-up in the morning, have drive throughout the day, stay out of reverse, pass your past, and gain mileage in life.
A person's gift makes a lane for them and drives them to the greats.
