This message is so personal for me because when I was going through the most difficult moments of my life; when I was so sad that I used to cry myself to sleep at night, drenching my pillows (or the floors of homeless shelters) with tears and hoping that my eyes would not open the next morning; when I was in those dark places, it was loving adults—teachers, coaches, a lunch lady, an assistant principal, a man struggling with an addiction to drugs, and others— who, despite all that was wrong in the world, lovingly met me at my point of need and helped me overcome so many seemingly insurmountable obstacles in my life. They helped me go from being a high school dropout to the man I am today—living my dreams as an author, a husband, father, pilot, and public servant.

The Power of One Keynote: Manny shares how he went from a 0.6 GPA and a high school dropout to a Ph.D. student, husband, father, pilot, and public servant. This presentation reminds leaders that even on their worst days, they can be someone’s best hope.

We are in a new world, characterized by rapid changes in population density, technology, immigration patterns, ethnic, religious, economic, and political diversity. These changes have created a world that requires school employees to regularly interact with people of different cultural origins—be it in their classrooms, in schools, next door, across town, or thousands of miles away. Whether or not schools embrace these changes, these “conversations” will continue to increase in both frequency and intensity and grow in importance. In How to R.E.A.C.H. Youth Today, I equip school employees with the awareness, understandings, and skills to communicate across those differences, to reach across those divides, and to teach across those cultures.

How to REACH Youth Today Keynote/Seminar: By sharing very real, life-changing lessons Mr. Scott has learned from teachers and loving adults who helped him, and from the work he has been doing with kids for the last 18 years, he shows how to cultivate healthy relationships with students—and all youth, so that they can excel in school, and come out prepared for work and life. Learn how to transform our schools into safe, positive environments where all adults are equipped to REACH kids, and all kids are empowered to REACH their destinies. This is available as a keynote, half-day, or full-day option.

I have been given a gift to engage even the most difficult audiences, and help them turn the page and begin writing (living) new, more fulfilling chapters in the lives. Chapters filled with healing and hope, perseverance and possibility. My Turn the Page assembly is a life-changing 60-90 minute experience that meets your students on their level, engages them in fun and positive ways. In each assembly, I help young people navigate through some of the very real and dark pain in their lives and then empower them with the mindset and strategy to overcome those obstacles.

Turn the Page School-Wide Assembly: Mr. Scott speaks at a school-wide assembly, inspiring students to excel academically, commit to graduate from high school, and come out prepared ready to excel in work and life. At the assembly, Mr. Scott will also inspire teachers to return to their classrooms with a powerful reminder of their “Why?” This is available as part of a half-day or full-day tour option.
