Justin Boudreau known by students as the “Dude Who Changed My Life” is ready to bring awareness to your “community”. His insightful “There YOU Are” vision and his expertise in HUM-ERGY (Humor & Energy) will empower your students to step up and stand out.
Despite being bullied, barely being able to read and having zero friends until middle school, Justin fulfilled his childhood dream by qualifying to compete in a professional beach volleyball tournament. He humbly states: “as a below average student with incredibly low self-esteem, I finally realized (at 22 years old) that I also played a key role in holding myself back for too long.”
This former high school teacher, coach of the year and author exudes a realness that students don’t question. On stage, his heart (not his ego) will inspire your students to worry less about being cool and focus more on their future. Justin’s words will resonate with the entire audience and motivate students to start accepting themselves and understanding others.
In 2007, Justin created a campaign that is based on paying gratitude forward. More than 30,000 people from over 15 countries participated, eventually attracting the attention of a Producer from “The Ellen Degeneres Show.” As a result, his unique and interactive approach on the topic of gratitude allows students to bravely express what they are really going through. Even going as far as saving students from committing suicide.
Justin is the Program Director at Seeds Training, the #1 provider of youth training worldwide. Justin is the co-author of the book for teens “Gearing Up: Inside & Out for a Great Life”.
Justin is extremely grateful to be living a purposeful life with his beautiful wife Santana and their cool 11 year old son, Kai. Justin travels out of San Diego.
