On March 14, 2013, Youth Motivational Speaker Jeff Yalden visited Smithfield High School in Smithfield, Rhode Island during “Respect Week”.

The administration had asked Jeff to help teach students to respect themselves as well as their peers, teachers and parents. Approximately 850 students in grades 9-12 filled the auditorium for the high school assembly. In sharing his message, “About Life”, Jeff asked the students if they expected people to respect them as soon as they walked into the school each morning. He then encouraged them to “lose the expectations and focus on the objectives”. He also explained that in showing respect to everyone you meet, you’ll often find that people respect you too.

Jeff has a gift for reaching every student in the audience, regardless of their social/emotional background or academic ranking.  He shares his heart with teens and speaks to them on their level. In doing so, he in turn touches their hearts and inspires them to chase their dreams.

After the assembly, students had the opportunity to purchase a Jeff Yalden t-shirt or bracelet, to pose for photos and to spend a few moments reflecting on Jeff’s message with him.

Initially Smithfield High School struggled to raise the funds to bring Jeff in as a Keynote Speaker. However, they felt very strongly that his message was important and they were able to make it work. Jeff always pours 110% of himself into each presentation so he left them feeling confident that they received more value for their money than they paid. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Smithfield High School. Their staff and students were welcoming and wonderful.
