We are currently in discussion with Binge Now Network TV Executives on one or more of their cable (Soul of the South) channels along with potential airing times on their negotiated agreement with the Washington, D.C. area‘s local PBS station. We also have our own Binge Now online channel to air episodes of our projects that have been successfully completed. When possible we will seek major network first round airing privileges negotiations. With over 18 episodes projected for the initial development, we believe this could be an ideal integrated marketing and sponsorship opportunity.
The professional staff of Efficacy Movement will teach and instruct. The youth participants will progress through the different levels of dance, drama, and athletic endeavors according to age and ability. Efficacy Movement participants will be taught the importance of maintaining a positive attitude, decision making, goals setting and transference of values such as responsibility, honesty, integrity and respect from the expressions of the inner creative source to everyday life.
A dance and theatre syllabus has been developed to include skills such as posture, alignment, and balance; the prevention of strain and injury; positions and movements at the barre; leaps, jumps and combinations of steps as well as dance terminology. There is also an emphasis on focus, discipline, utilization of sequential order and the building of confidence and self-esteem. Sessions will build on each other with new students beginning with the basics and the returning students moving on to more complex work. These very skills are part and parcel for the building of speed, strength, flexibility, and agility in the area sports athletics.

PurposeThe purpose of the program is to introduce the basic fundamental game of golf to the inner city / underserved community of Houston within the confines of the city limits.
GoalsOne of our goals is to develop character through the structure and the rules of the game. An example of how golf builds character is that it is the only sport where participants call penalties on themselves. Golf also teaches other life skills like patience, good sportsmanship, and the ability to focus on the task at hand.
EducationOur education of the game begins with introductory clinics for beginners, and is followed with rule books, rule tests, literature on etiquette, and instructor and golfer expectations.
Efficacy Movement participants will be taught the importance of maintaining a positive attitude, decision making, goals setting and transference of values such as responsibility, honesty, integrity and respect. We also hope that we are exposing our youth to a leisure activity that they can enjoy, no matter what their ability level might be, for the rest of their lives.
The generosity of golf equipment being donated to the youth plus discount purchases and courses who give the use of their facilities. Almost every public and private golf course in the county participated in the program with the heaviest burden falling on the four City of Flint courses which was used every day of our program.
Secondly, the dedication of volunteer supervisors and Rangers who worked at the courses all day to make things run smoothly when the youth participants reached the level and ability to move along on the course. And finally, the Corporate Sponsors for their continued support and services which have enhanced the quality of the program over the past years.
We are enthusiastic towards bringing golf to the youth using these experiences with the junior golf associations as our guide.
Prime example of the success of the golf program comes from the experience of Makeda Williams, Director of Efficacy's golf program, who not only competed as a junior golfer at it's highest level and received an athletic scholarship, but became the #1 female golfer for TSU Women's Team and ranked 6th the conference. Later after starting a family Ms Williams was eventually asked by the college coach to assist with his 2013 women's team as an assistant coach. Three of Ms Williams Junior Golf participants went on to play professional sports including football Heisman trophy winner Mark Ingram.
