What is YouthMAX?

YouthMAX is a youth leadership curriculum, designed to give today’s young people practical tools and ideas to help them navigate life in four key areas: Stand Up & Be Counted (Stop Bullying), Learning to Fail Forward to Success, Developing a Positive Self-Image and Developing Strong Personal Character.

Stand Up & Be Counted

  • 1 in 7 students in Grades K-12 is either a bully or a victim of bullying.

  • 1 out of every 10 students who drops out of school does so because of

    repeated bullying.

  • YouthMAX will help equip youth to take responsibility, to help others,

    and be a hero by righting a wrong.

  • YouthMAX will equip youth to stand up, lift up and pick up others.

  • Learning to Fail Forward to Success

  • Most teens believe that all failure is bad and should be avoided. In fact, failing is the most important part of success.

  • Those who fear failure will not take the steps to fail forward.

  • YouthMAX will provide youth with facts about failure, how to fail

    correctly and how to move forward to success after failure.

  • Developing a Positive Self Image

  • Positive self-image can be the greatest determining factor in success.

  • Positive self-image does not begin with what we do or what we have,

    it begins with who we are and who we think we are.

  • Positive self-esteem helps teens cope with emotional stress; this

    correlates with success in later life.

  • Confidence and the willingness to try new challenges can lead teens to

    greater academic success, earning scholarships and/or receiving other

    learning opportunities.

  • YouthMAX will help youth understand the importance of self-image.

  • YouthMAX will offer ways to develop a positive self-image through



Developing Strong Personal Character

A survey released by the Josephson Institute of Ethics on the values and ethical actions of high school students shows:

  •   A majority of students admitted cheating on a test, with many doing it

    more than two times.

  •   Students even confessed they lied on some of the survey questions,

    which the Josephson Institute said is typically an attempt to conceal


  •   YouthMAX will equip youth to form/build character by aligning values,

    thoughts, feelings, and actions to help ensure victories in their lives,

    both now and in the future.

  •   YouthMAX will reinforce the thought process that developing good

    character traits is the best insurance for handling difficult day’s in the future through determination rather than discouragement. 



"Everyone communicates, few connect. We will show you how to connect and make an impact through your speeches and presentations."

Want to know the secret to getting anything you want in your professional and personal life? Communication. Communication is the key that unlocks the door to effectively influencing others. Whether you are leading a team of people in your company, running a business, negotiating a contract, or seeking buy-in from others, if you know how to communicate, you will be much more successful than those who do not. I can help you master the art of communication so you can connect and engage with others at every level.

The Maxwell Method of Speaking


Participating in the Maxwell Speaker Club is the next best thing to being trained by John Maxwell himself. Each week, we will watch and extract lessons from John’s live presentations and speeches. As your facilitator, I will guide you through practical exercises to help you master your communication. You will experience the same quality instruction used by John and Speaker Trainer, Roddy Galbraith, to train speakers all over the world through the John Maxwell Team. Join the speakers club that was created for leaders like you!


Want to improve your speaking skills? Learn from a master of communication, John C. Maxwell. This half-day workshop will be a powerful experiential speaker training workshop, covering topics such as:

• The art and practice of developing stories
• How to connect with your audience and hold their attention
• How to overcome the fear of speaking in public
• Developing your own style of communication
• Crafting your content for the most effective presentation

Upon completion of this training, participants will receive a certificate.


 Whether you are making a 15-minute presentation or an hour-long keynote, your ability to connect and communicate will be essential to effectively getting the audience to take action and move forward. In this presentation, we will discuss the critical keys to success when it comes to influencing and impacting people. We will cover:

• The speaking skills essential for every leader.
• How to connect with others and keep them engaged.
• The power of stories - even in the most technical presentations.
• Why it is important for you as a leader to continue to develop your speaking skills.
