Youth Speaker visits Samuel Robertson Tech Secondary

Youth Speaker Jeff Yalden

Jeff Yalden is one of the most requested youth motivational speakers for the past 20 years.  Many teen speakers get burnt out easily with the travel, and at times Jeff does too. But, one thing Jeff will tell you when speaking to teens is that this is the most amazing opportunity in the world to reach out and speak to them the way he wishes someone had spoken to him when he was younger.  Jeff is grateful every opportunity he gets to speak and is fully present at every speaking engagement.  The proof of his presence felt is simply by reading his Facebook fan page.  Visit to see what others are saying.

On January 25, 2012 – Jeff was invited to share his high school assembly motivational talk to Samuel Robertson Technical Secondary School in Maple Ridge, British Columbia.  This is a suburb of Vancouver.  Jeff said, “I was amazed they invited me to Vancouver when they knew I was a Boston Bruins fan.”  Jeff certainly made that point well known when he mentioned Tim Thomas (Bruins Goalie that isn’t well liked in Vancouver after last year’s Stanley Cup Finals – Game 7).

The day was amazing and Jeff was certainly on target.  The day started off with the school giving Jeff a school hockey jersey with his name sewn on the back.  Did you know that Jeff is a big hockey fan?  Now you do!  Jeff was really touched by that special gesture.

Then came the kids.   As the kids filed into the gym, Jeff was talking amongst the student council and sharing some laughs.  The introduction came from Jordan.  Jordan memorized the introduction and gave one of the best that Jeff ever heard.  Jeff said of his presentation, “It was amazing.  The kids were amazing.  The mood was amazing.  The laughs were amazing.  The feeling was amazing. I was amazing because they were so amazing.”

After three assemblies and school board, politicians, local dignitaries, and community members, Jeff was inspired and grateful that the day was so awesome.

Afterwards, Jeff went to listen to the Rock Bands play.  The kids said they were honored to play for Jeff.  Actually, Jeff felt more honored that they played and allowed him to watch.  What a special school and a special day for Teen Motivational Speaker – Jeff Yalden.
