YOUTH MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER

CONNECTING WITH STUDENTS ON AN EMOTIONAL LEVEL

Youth motivational speaker David Flood has been speaking with and helping teens and young adults for over 20 years. He teaches teens through the telling of his own very personal stories about his family in the past and present.

At David’s student assembly programs he uses simple examples that students can relate to in order to show them how to improve their lives and how to have a profound impact on those around them. David will reinforce any social and emotional learning (SEL) that your school is already providing. He believes in proactive emotional literacy to encourage dignity and respect throughout the building. It is for this reason that he has spoken in over 600 middle schools and high schools as well as leadership conferences, parent workshops, and professional development days for teachers.

He’s been a featured speaker at middle school assemblies, high school assemblies, colleges, and teacher/counselor conferences throughout the United States and Canada and established himself as a national youth motivational speaker that students connect with on an emotional level. David is one of the best youth motivational speakers in the country today.

God

To understand that it is ok to “not” be ok.

To be taught how to handle their emotions.  That emotions are healthy.  Emotional intelligence should be part of the curriculum.

They need someone who strives to understand and then helps them to move through what they are feeling.

Love, support, safety.

Stability and security.

Honesty.

Time.

Connection.

Empathy, kindness, and patience.

Assurance.

Safety and security.

Understanding.

Acceptance and support.

Parents support.

A soft spot to land.

Reassurance.

Parents to read to them.

Love.

Hope.

Space.

I hope that this list gives you pause.  I know that it made me think of other words and ways to help kids and adults.  We take many things for […]
