Youth Small Group Breakout Sessions:
(The breakout sessions below are great for high schools, middle
schools, universities, athletes, student leaders, troubled youth, at risk
students, boys or girls only discussions, non profits, summer programs,
conferences, workshops, seminars, churches, conventions)

•        You Pick The Topic and the Students
•        30 min, 1 hour sessions, 2 hour sessions
•        30 students or less preferably to increase individual participation

Small group breakout sessions are broken into any combination of 3
(1) “The Leader’s Responsibility”
(2) “Connect to Your Best Future”
(3) “Our Greatest Success Stories”

(1) “A Leader’s Responsibility” (students with peer influence)
This breakout session target students who naturally lead their peers.
This group is not for students who are the teachers’ favorites but the
students’ favorites. This group shall consist of a mixed bag of young
leaders. This group is for the negative and positive leaders. In some
cases, youth tend to follow the toughest and most outspoken person
among their peers. In other cases, students admire and follow the best
athlete on the team. Other cases show that students follow the student
with the nicest cars and clothes. In this group, I am looking for students
with traits that set them apart. I am not looking for the quiet students
with great grades. I am looking for student leaders for the sole purpose
of connecting them to the importance of the positive influence they can
put out. This group of students have the power to encourage large
crowds of students to reach their absolute best because so many
others follow them.

(2) “Connect to Your Best Future” (under performing students)
This purpose driven breakout session is designed for students who
lack drive and motivation to do their best. This session applies to
athletes who make the minimum requirements to play, or other
students who settle with “B” and “C” averages or less that put out little
effort, and students who continue to separate themselves from their
best future because they are constantly acting out or skipping class
and continue to remove themselves from the classroom for disciplinary
reasons. “I believe all students can become great the moment they
connect to the importance of all of their actions”

(3) “Our Greatest Success Stories” (at risk youth with overwhelming
This youth motivational breakout session is for youth with
overwhelming challenges at home or at school. I don’t need to know
their personal circumstances. Some of these students will have to
struggle with the emotional stress of being raised in foster care. Some
may be forced to support their family financially at a very early age and
are forced to work when other students have time to do their
homework. Others may struggle with the importance of staying in
school and they are at risk to dropping out any day. The greatest
success stories in life that inspire others are often created from kids
who grow up in very poor conditions that were able to navigate their
environment to become successful. It is very important to me to
encourage this group because they often have to deal with many
challenges that others never had to worry about.

they are old enough to make mistakes that will affect them for the rest of their life. This topic will focus heavily on the importance of every choice
and the positive or negative consequences that may follow. We must connect our youth to the real life consequences for every choice they make
or don’t make.

Personal Branding: We live in a world where stereotypes are formed  We live in a world where stereotypes are formed personal branding.
Students need to understand
Personal the power of social the power of social media such as Facebook, Linkedin, Google +, media such as
