“Directing is really exciting. At the end, it’s more fun to be the painter than the paint” [George Clooney]
Alvin Rogers, Educator, has the ability to paint ideas into vivid masterpieces that can leave a lasting effect on the hearts and minds of many. He is no stranger to inspiring others, being one of the many professors at the college of FIT as well as a wonderful tenor saxophonist. He can be described as a humanitarian because he goes beyond the grain when he puts into motion, non-collegiate educational programs, beneficial to the youth.
Many take the aspect of success and define it with material wealth. Examples of this may be, owning gigantic homes and fancy cars. But when you see the outcome of a well-organized plan and the young minds that are moved and excited about learning something fresh and new that can help them in their future, success is etched into their smiles.
Alvin Rogers and his partner, Dan Johnson, an engineer at Google, has teamed up to teach youth technological skills. The not-for-profit organization, Phattime seeks to change that and its pilot program has showed that change can be successfully implemented. The idea of change changes minds. And what a better way to do it than to share information about something that people will be interested in learning about.
Please check out the documentary created to give an in depth look at the pilot program and to raise visibility to what Phattime, the Learning Network 501 (3c) is all about.
