Our Mission & Purpose

Mission & Purpose

Mission: To keep students inspired, parents involved and teachers engaged through consistent, sustained and inspired coolness in everything we do.

Purpose: Our focus has been and will always be the kids. Not every student knows it, but they are the building blocks of our future, and by empowering them, we empower everyone else too. We empower our audiences to become catalysts for positive change, intrinsic motivation, personal growth, and self-sustaining inspiration.

We Put The Motivation Back Into Education.

Our Founders

In 1999, the initial concept for CoolSpeak started with a graduate research project centered around the idea of creating a website where educators could find great speakers and presenters for their students and was coupled with a simple passion, to assist children in finding their goals and dreams and encouraging them to pursue those ambitions to the fullest.

The project got a resounding A, but that was as far as the project went. As the author of the project, Carlos Ojeda Jr., moved on and began his career in higher education and youth motivational speaking, he engaged students and made an impact, but couldn’t shake the feeling that something was missing. He felt that the impact he was making could and should be extended and expanded. His idea was that kids speak a language that is cool; a language that is always changing, a language that they define and control. A language that he and other youth motivational speakers understood; a cool language that they spoke. CoolSpeak.

In that moment, the initial concept, the passion, and idea were given form: CoolSpeak: The Youth Engagement Company. A company that could leverage the cool language kids speak to design and develop programs and events that expanded and extended the impact of traditional youth motivational speaking.

But it wasn’t until Carlos met Ernesto Mejia, an individual as ‘crazy’ and passionate as he was, who also happened to be one of the best youth facilitators in the country, that the vision for CoolSpeak began to take shape.

Since 2009, Carlos and Ernesto have worked tirelessly to make CoolSpeak the company that it is today.  Their passion to impact youth on a broader and more transformative scale was the driving force behind CoolSpeak’s success.  Fueled by a lifelong passion to spark change, CoolSpeak inspires students, parents, and educators to dream bigger, imagine more, and never settle for anything less than what they’re capable of manifesting.
