Teaching YouthMAX Leadership Training
|North of Boston YouthMax: Just finished two presentations. One for a public school the so called “troubled teens” and another Junior ROTC. Both groups great. Fantastic feedback from faculty who want the entire program and are working on grants for the fall. Teachers said the “Troubled Teens” were amazingly engaged and responsive. More to come. Very satisfying for all. Thank you John, the John Maxwell Team, and the faculty. We are blessed with content and character.

|With YouthMAX, I chose to get a feeling from 4 different groups of kids: public schools, private schools, youth organizations and private teacher-youth groups. 15 hours, all 4 lessons, 5 days, 300 kids. Feedback was unanimous: “We want more”, “It’s the 1st time we heard about solutions and not problems”, “We now believe more in ourselves”. It is now time to reflect and expand my vision. Plan my next steps and continue adding value and watering a thirsty soil. Glad to be a part of the John Maxwell Team!

|Last night’s YouthMax night at Dix Hills Church was great!!!! The kids circled around afterwards & were just talking about their self image & strengths They were so excited, then parents who were there to pick up their kids joined in! I encouraged them all that this is just the beginning of their conversation …they get to continue it.

|Wow! Had an awesome morning with our youth. Just wrapped up a 45 min YouthMAX presentation with the 8th graders at Village Academy! Several of the students who saw themselves as ‘bullies’ came to me at the end of the presentation and wanted to see how to become better students! Wow! Thank you JMT for making a difference in this world! I am so grateful!

|The Girls Detention Center that I presented Youth Max to is beginning a pilot program with me for 4 weeks in June to teach the Youth Max lessons to girls who are rejoining society after incarceration. This pilot will be part of the program preparing them to take a step forward into their new lives. Teaching them to take the lead in their lives will be an honor. So grateful to sow into their lives in such a meaningful way and to do so, as part of the John Maxwell Team!
