Student Leadership Conferences

Jeff-Yalden-power-jamJeff motivates, encourages, and inspires student leaders.  Hundreds of youth conferences have asked Jeff to be their keynote speaker over the years:  FCCLA, FFA, FHA, FEA, DECA, FBLA, STUCO, Gear Up, 4-H, PAL, the SEARCH Institute, our military, the AG-SIM International Youth Summit in Singapore, and many more.

Jeff’s message inspires student leaders across North America and the world. No youth motivational speaker stokes the audience more than Jeff Yalden.  He’s ‘edgy’ and ‘real’, and always age appropriate.

Hyannis Youth & Community Center, Cape Cod
May 8, 2013 – Grades 9-12

Finally! Jeff Yalden is taking his Student Leadership 20 years experience and creating his own student leadership one day Power Jam Youth Conference. From 9:30 am – 1:30 pm, this Power Jam is going to take your Student Leaders on an emotional roller-coaster of high energy and high content. Headlining the morning will be North America’s #1 Teen Motivational Speaker & Television’s Favorite Teen Life Coach, Jeff Yalden. Along with Jeff and his message, Jeff is bringing in TOP GUN Female Youth Motivational Speaker – Harriet Turk from Memphis, TN and Celebrity Fitness Professional and good friend – Ms. Figure Universe & WBFF Professional Figure Athlete – Shannon Petralito. This ALL-STAR lineup of two of American’s Top Teen Motivational Speakers will deliver powerful messages that will be sure to leave your teen leaders wanting more and excited to bring change back to their schools.

*** WARNING: Jeff is ‘real’ and changes lives. Please don’t ever ask Jeff to take out his earrings, cover his tattoos, or compromise the person he is to speak to your students.  To compromise who he is is to ask Jeff to change the person he is which takes away from his authenticity.  Hire another speaker if you don’t want a speaker that is real and truly connects with teens. ***

Jeff is a welcome gust of wind to the morale and spirit of any youth leadership conference or event. While teens are in ‘awe’ of his size and presence, Jeff is more in ‘awe’ of the gratitude he feels to be a part of their lives.

Student Leadership Conferences Keynote

TIME will always hold you ACCOUNTABLE

You’ve had Jeff speak at your school, and your kids want him back, but you might be concerned that they’ve already heard him speak.  STOP . . . This is a whole new message. They may have heard Jeff speak before, but they haven’t heard this keynote.  Jeff tailors his ‘About Life’ message into a Leadership Keynote Speech.

Jeff’s message in this Keynote is more serious and talks with teens about how our choices will hold us accountable, over time. Yes, there is humor in this too, but this message details stories of Jeff’s past that really get to the heart of your audience.

Student Leadership Workshops

Defining Moments That Shape Your Character **Interactive**

Give Jeff an hour with your student leaders and he will encourage them to lead by character, rather than by reputation.  Depending on the amount of time available, and the leaders he is speaking with, Jeff will either share stories that are interactive, or Jeff will do interactive activities that make them think differently.

From his days as a United States Marine, Jeff will share stories that have transformed his life and made him the person he is today.

Jeff will inspire your student leaders through interactive activities that get them to think ‘outside the box. ‘ We will talk about communication, thinking outside the box, and the importance of working together.

Time for Workshops: 45 minutes to 1.5 hours

Youth Speaker teen leadership groups conferencesJeff will encourage your student leaders to be real, to believe in themselves, to live through character and not through reputation.

Jeff’s Leadership Programs & Conferences are a roller coaster of emotions, delving equally into laughter, tears, and quiet reflection. Some student leaders claim that they draw more from Jeff’s one-hour keynote than they have through their entire high school or college experience. Perhaps, it is because student leaders yearn for the qualities that have transformed Jeff’s own life.

Students will learn from Jeff what it takes to find themselves and become the leaders they envision.

Jeff also runs Student Leadership Workshops. Why not incorporate a leadership workshop into your next event, and you’ll see how your student leaders work together to solve the problem sat hand. You’ll see how some students take charge, while others follow.  Always, fun and interactive.

Jeff speaks to high school students & student leaders differently than he does to middle school students.  Jeff’s gift is truly understanding how to relate to students on their level, regardless of age or social status.

Jeff doesn’t use flip charts or handouts. His message will linger on long after his presentation has ended.

Jeff’s Programs are age appropriate and, with advance notice, can be tailored to a specific theme at your request.

Don’t miss out on a great opportunity to bring an Award-Winning Youth Motivational Speaker and MTV MADE Teen Life Coach, to your school assembly program or for your next Youth Leadership Conference!
