Brief Program Description

Closing the Achievement Gap is the rallying cry in America today. However, a key tenet in doing so is to close the Ambition Gap, for if youth lack ambition then they are less likely to achieve—especially when burdened with a plethora of societal and educational forms of inequity. In this highly engaging session, Keith will show youth advocates how their outlook and innovative output will directly influence the outcome of the youth they serve. In addition, he will provide tangible tools and strategies that will awaken youth to desire not only to excel, but also to transform that desire into positive results.
