Joel Penton: Youth Motivational Speaker Stands Out

Posted by joelpenton on February 12th, 2014

Joel Penton stands out as one of the leading youth motivational speakers in the country today, touching the lives of teens that hear his unique approach to teenage issues. Unlike other speakers, Joel offers to his captive audiences real-life examples that are much more relevant to their lives, and delivers life-changing messages in the process.

A Humanitarian Heisman award recipient (a national award that recognizes a college football player showing exemplary community service and athletic/academic achievement), Joel turned down once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play in the NFL and started a career in speaking, right after graduating from the Ohio State University. Since then, he quickly earned a reputation as a top motivational speaker for middle school and high school assemblies.

Committed to inspiring the youth, Joel travels the United States to give unique, engaging, and positive dialogues, helping teens make the right decisions in life. Since following his passion for community service and for inspiring the youth and impact the future, Joel has been in front of more than 500,000 students and is still striving to touch more lives with the use of a unique ‘positive approach.’

His speeches focus on the positive results of making well thought-out decisions rather than the negative consequences of wrong or poor choices in life. He shares his own personal stories of triumph and shows his teen audiences how ordinary people can do and achieve great things simply by making the right decisions.

Joel understands how students and youth are constantly told about the negative consequences of wrong decisions, and how they are excessively told what not to do (Don't do drugs, Don't mess up like he/she did, Don't be a bully), but rarely about what they should do to overcome these negatives. He believes that by bringing a positive message to students, and telling them positive things that are not said enough (stories of personal trials and triumphs through these trials), he can be more effective in motivating the youth to make the right choices.

Of the many different schools Joel has spoken in, he has received nothing but favorable feedback about his positive approach, making him truly one of the best motivational speakers and presenters for the youth today. If you want your students to learn how to achieve great things by simply making the right choices and following through with their commitments, Joel Penton is the perfect speaker for your next high school assembly.
