Meet the persons Behind Bay8
Mr Michael Irving,
Dean of Discipline of Foga Rd High
Preamble: My interest is simply in serving my society. ‘I speak to all people’, but I do have a particular interest in program for educational, sports, youth and community development.
Particulars: I now serve as a school administrator, working in the capacity of Dean of Discipline, while undertaking M Phil/PhD Studies in Theology(& Education) I am aiming to use Christology as a point of reference for exploring youth and community development – via a reformed educational model. The intended thrust of my work is to seek fundamental reform in the ‘laws’ of society, I also serve as a motivational speaker in the interim.
Past Experience: In the past, as with the present, I have served as an Educator Counselor locally and overseas, and have also worked in communities and with civic Jamaican organisations such as NIA, CAFFE, PALS, JET. I have also had training in Investigative Journalism & Social Work,
Planned Career Pathway: Having been trained as a Minister in Theology, and with three decades of experience as an educator, my aim is to ultimately serve as a community worker and educator.
Philosophy & Philanthropy: My ultimate goal as an educator is to inspire a praxis-oriented approach to life – culminating in individuals being able to affect their existence and that of others in a positive manner – one that can only consolidate the process of human development and self-actualization.
My Bay8 charity is an initiative that seeks to reach out to all needy, while focusing on selecting ‘ the few good men and women’ who truly wish for change. Bay8 uses sports as a point of engagement.
