The GCC Difference
Inspiration is the watchword. We are the only youth-centric online magazine dedicated to consistently providing inspirational, positive, and wholesome information for students in Nigerian higher institutions.
We are the only platform dedicated to achieving a convergence of Mentors, Mentees, Motivators and Models – what we call the 4-M Effect.
The 4-M Effect
Mentors: Respected individuals who can inspire the youths (students) with their experiences. People who the youths look up to, and who can offer advice to help shape the lives of youths positively.
Mentees: These are the youths/students in higher intuitions. The emerging generation of leaders in need of direction, inspiration, knowledge, that will equip them for a better future.
Motivators: Parents, teachers, etc, people who are devoted to encouraging their youths to be the best ‘them’ they can be. However, motivators aren’t just people, but anything capable of having a positive impact – inspirational articles on the site, exceptional acts of other youths, amongst others.
Models: This last M is the ultimate goal. The overall effect of the interaction between the first three Ms will help shape the youths into Model Citizens for others to follow – people capable of changing the destiny of this nation for good.
To provide an interactive forum that positively engages youth, educate, influence and empower them to make the right life choices and become role model.
