Motivational Youth Speaker - How Hiring One Can Help Your At-Risk Students

For school administrators, teachers, and principals who want to figure out a way to help their at-risk students, hiring a motivational youth speaker like Joel Penton is an excellent option. Over the years, his messages of positivity and perseverance have helped countless teenagers in precarious academic and personal situations.

 How a Motivational Youth Speaker Can Help Students Who Are at Risk of Dropping Out of School

How a Motivational Youth Speaker Can Help Students Who Are at Risk of Dropping Out of SchoolWhen students face academic challenges that they believe to be insurmountable, they may see dropping out of school as the only solution to their problem. In reality, of course, leaving school at an early age is only likely to result in further difficulties during adulthood. After all, without a proper education, it will be difficult for them to get a decent job, purchase a home, and lead a comfortable life.

As a motivational youth speaker, Joel has met with hundreds of teenagers who felt like they were not good enough for school and that their only choice was to drop out. Each time, he helps them to understand that they have other options. He explains that persistence and commitment are much better pathways to success in life than withdrawing from education. He shows them that if they are relentless in the pursuit of their goals, good things will happen.

As a result of Joel's positive messages, at-risk students are much more likely to want to stay in school and take on their challenges, rather than dropping out to avoid them.

How a Motivational Youth Speaker Can Help Students Who Are at Risk of Becoming Addicted to Drugs or Alcohol

How a Motivational Youth Speaker Can Help Students Who Are at Risk of Becoming Addicted to Drugs or AlcoholEvery year, thousands of teenagers are pressured into using drugs and alcohol by their peers. In many cases, what starts as just one drink or just one pill quickly blossoms into a full-blown life-altering addiction.

For Joel, the best way to stop kids from falling into the trap of addiction is to help at-risk students understand how to make smart decisions. After all, when they know how to think logically and intelligently about their future, they are much more likely to turn down that initial drink or pill - avoiding the pitfalls of drugs and alcohol entirely.

To help his students at his motivational youth speaker assemblies develop better decision-making skills, Joel tells them about several real-world examples of tough situations that he has encountered during his life. He then walks them through the processes he used to arrive at the right decision. When the discussion has concluded, the students leave with a better understanding of how to apply these same processes to their own lives.

Stand your ground.  Don't back down.

What does it mean to stand your ground? People today are
constantly making commitments and breaking them.  Look at
divorce rates, credit card debts, New Years's resolutions... and
the list of unfulfilled promises goes on.  It it even possible to
keep our commitments?

Stand your ground,  Don't back down.

Joel Penton says, "Yes it is possible" - he knows from
experience.  Like most of your students, Joel was put into
situations in middle school and high school where it would
have been easy to compromise and break his commitments.
However, he chose to rise above the pressure and keep the
committments he made in school, in football, and in life.

Stand your ground.  Don't back down.

Joe will say that it takes character, it takes will, and the road
will be hard.  But his personal experience is proof that ordinary
people can accomplish great things by simply following through
with the commitments they have made.  Your students will be
inspired and reminded of the importance of not just making
committments, but also keep those commitments.

Don't back down.  Stand your ground.
