Motivational Speaker Scott Greenberg Reaches Out to Teen Leaders With Inspirational Student Leadership Training

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - November 16, 2009) - Nationally renowned youth motivational speaker Scott Greenberg of Jump Start Performance Programs has scheduled a tour of keynotes and student leadership training at high school student council conferences throughout the United States. The inspirational speaker will be covering topics such as leadership, resilience and peak performance, as well as the importance of service and promoting school unity.

Each U.S. state has an association of student councils elected by their peers to plan school activities and represent their interests to administrations and school boards. In addition to their campus-based responsibilities, they attend state and national conferences with hundreds and sometimes thousands of other student leaders.

Recently Greenberg presented motivational keynotes, leadership workshops and advisor sessions at state conferences in California, Oregon, Texas and Pennsylvania as well as for the National Association of Student Councils and the Southern Association of Student Councils. He'll soon be keynoting state conferences in Nevada, Arizona, Louisiana and Indiana. In the past he's spoken for 21 other state associations.

"The students attending these conferences are the leaders of tomorrow. They already have tremendous influence at their schools, so it's imperative that we inspire and train them now," said Greenberg.

In addition to youth programs, Greenberg is one of the nation's top motivational speakers for a wide variety of corporate groups and industries. As a former student council member himself, he avails himself to youth leadership organizations at a discounted fee. He has facilitated his own leadership conferences for a number of youth groups, and served on the Board of Directors for the California Association of Student Councils.
