Students

Without a doubt, youth motivational speaker and master teacher Dr. Adolph Brown offers the most unique, informing and entertaining presentations THAT STICK for today's young people.  All generations K-12 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 and educational psychology and a married Christian father of eight uniquely wonderful children.  As a former at risk inner-city urban youth 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 of anti bullying, college & career readiness, diversity, LGBTQIA+, adolescent & teen mental health, 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 FCCLA, FBLA, and HOSA. 

To date, as a school speaker Dr. Brown has successfully addressed as many as 26,000 students at once to intimate focus groups of 12 students.  His most memorable positive impact has been students denouncing their gang affiliations and giving Dr. Brown their gang paraphernalia. Once in a Virginia school, a student gave Dr. Brown a loaded handgun after the presentation.

The Dream Team is comprised of today's best and most diverse group of youth motivational speakers.  They began as group of friends who made the choice not to give up; now they are a family of encouraging individuals. They are collectively known as the Dream Team because they never allowed anything to stand between them and their dreams. Individually, team members have experienced the challenges associated with bullying, family problems, language barriers, English as a Second Language, being black & brown boys, alienation, the effects of family alcohol and drug abuse, fighting, racism and self-esteem.  Through their stories of trials and triumphs of overcoming being a “Newcomer to Overcomer,” "Be A Buddy, Not A Bully," "At-Risk to At-Promise, "Be Better, Not Bitter," “Hugs Not Drugs,” “BE-YOU-TIFUL” and “It's Not How You Start..” the Dream Team connects with all through powerful messages, uplifting music and lots of motivation.
