By philosophical definition, power is the ability to influence the behavior of others with or without resistance. By youth motivational speaker Carlos Ojeda Jr.’s definition, power is the ability to get things done! The ability to bring about positive change in the world. He believes that true power is evident in education, technological advancement, and in revolution, but no more so than in the hands of the youth that make these things happen.
The Power of Youth Workbook is a supplemental tool for the groundbreaking, interactive Power of Youth book that is designed to inspire students to cultivate the power that lies within them. The workbook echoes Carlos’ motivational presentations and includes activities, writing assignments, and projects that allow students to demonstrate that their voice is their power.
