This week we speak with Jamal Burger, Founder of Kickback Connect. We discuss Jamal’s vision for uplifting youth and how his love for sneakers turned into a youth-led organization whose impact is felt around the globe. Unlike traditional programs, the Kickback aims to empower underserved youth dreams to change their world.
Are you actually really making a change if you just jump into a system that’s been running the same way for 30 years?Jamal Burger
Jamal’s passion for connecting people is not only visible in the name of his organization, it comes through in his messaging throughout the interview. We’ll also discuss how Jamal applied the same thinking to start Tier Zero, a toronto-based production company, with a group of friends who share the common passion of producing work at a premium.
There’s no question Jamal is a connector, but what also comes through in our conversation is his passion for empowering others to become leaders in the community; whether they’re youth in one of his many programs or business partners and friends.
