More informationAccording to MacArthur Foundation "genius grant" winner Bill Strickland, a successful life is not something you simply pursue, it is something that you create, moment by moment. Over the past thirty years, Bill Strickland has been transforming the lives of thousands of people through the creation of Manchester Bidwell, a jobs training center and community arts program. Working with corporations, community leaders, and schools, he and his staff strive to give disadvantaged kids and adults the opportunities and tools they need to envision and built a better, brighter future.
Strickland believes that every one of us can accomplish the impossible in our lives if given the right inspiration and motivation to do so. We all make ourselves "poor" in one way or another when we accept that we are not smart enough, experienced enough, or talented enough to accomplish something. Bill Strickland works with the least advantaged among us, and if he can help them achieve the impossible in their lives, think what each of us can do.
Through lessons from his own life experiences, and those of countless others who have overcome their circumstances and turned their lives around, MAKE THE IMPOSSIBLE POSSIBLE shows how all of us can build on our passions and strengths, dream bigger and set the bar higher, achieve meaningful success, and help mentor and inspire the lives of others.
