Without a doubt, mental health and youth motivational speaker, clinical psychologist, master teacher, and former at-risk student Dr. Adolph Brown offers the most unique, informing, relatable, inspiring, entertaining and fun yet challenging presentations THAT STICK for today's young people as well their teachers and advisors.  All generations K-12, GEAR UP, At-Risk, and college campus students alike have had their fair share of challenges and crises.  Today, kids are experiencing scary news on a regular basis coupled with the pressures of social media to "fit in."  Everything from shootings, cyber-attacks, school violence to terror attacks have become a harsh reality.  Although it may be tough, kids today can be taught to be tougher.  Dr. Brown takes young people on a growth-mindset journey to find the light in the midst of so much darkness.  Kids will learn that all is not perfect in the world but that they can make it better.





Dr. Adolph Brown became the best at-risk and leadership youth motivational speaker by overcoming "insurmountable" obstacles himself on his journey from an at-risk student of abject poverty to a doctor of clinical psychology and a married Christian father of eight uniquely wonderful children.  As a former at risk youth in the urban inner-city who spent his summers in rural Virginia on his grandparent's farm, Dr. Brown knows firsthand about the struggles of today's young.  He receives countless accolades and positive acknowledgements from his tremendous impact on student audiences and their entire school community from k-12/k-14 to higher education community college & university students. As a clinical and educational psychologist, former special education and alternative education teacher, he successfully addresses issues related to anti bullying, college & career readiness, empathy, adolescent & teen mental health, Black History Month, at risk students, character, standardized test anxiety, peer pressure, drug awareness, leadership, digital citizenship, fighting, healthy choices, dating, entrepreneurship, the importance of education, sportsmanship, and the SUCCESS Mindset.  Dr. Brown has also enjoyed his long-standing relationship with TRIO Programs, FCCLA, FBLA, and HOSA.  Doc Brown has also shared his expertise, life experiences, and his essential skills book "Championship Habits" with students of Junior Achievement (JA).
