When meeting with program directors, I stress the importance of developing a curriculum for my seminars that are specific to those youth.
Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) September 15, 2010
Giving back to the community is something that model, and teen motivational speaker Jordan Anthony Swain is all too familiar with. Having graduated high school in 2009 with over 300 documented hours of community service, Swain quotes, "There is no feeling greater, than that of giving back, and volunteering your time, to make a difference in someone's life."
Jordan moved to Los Angeles July of 2009, to pursue a career in acting, modeling and writing. He also began seeking out local Boys and Girls Clubs, Youth Centers, and teen programs throughout the Greater Los Angeles area. In a recent seminar, Swain spoke with 15 teens in Compton, a city in the troubled South Central Region of Los Angeles. "When meeting with program directors, I stress the importance of developing a curriculum for my seminars that are specific to those youth. If a particular neighborhood has a problem with crime, or high drop out rates, I develop material relevant to bringing light to the issue, and getting the teens to brainstorm active ways to be proactive."
When asked if he feels that being young himself is beneficial in his seminars, Swain responds, "I feel as though my age is definitely a positive factor that enables me to connect with my audience on a much deeper level. It provides somewhat of an example that says hey, I am on my way to fulfilling my dreams, I am staying focused, and here's how you can do it too."
Swains seminars have touched on a variety of topics and audiences, from the tender age of 7, through 20 years old. He speaks throughout Greater Los Angeles, Boston, Washington DC, Miami, and has scheduled cities coming up that include New York, San Francisco, and Orlando.
