The Power of Youth


Carlos Ojeda Jr. has been called one of the most dynamic speakers in America today. A former university administrator, professor, and small business development center director, he now focuses his energy on empowering students to succeed by teaching them that they have the power to change their lives, the lives of those they love, and their world. He is a youth development expert, with over fifteen years of experience inspiring students parents, and education professionals in over 40 states.

Combining his entrepreneurial spirit with his passion for changing the lives of youth across the country, he started CoolSpeak: The Youth Engagement Company. Carlos is an educator, youth speaker, author, poet, and entrepreneur and yet still finds time to be a devoted husband to his wife, dedicated father to his children, and committed to his family and community.

Now, with the Power of Youth tour, Carlos focuses his energy on empowering students to succeed through a 45 minutes presentation that teaches them that their voice is their power. Through humor, emotional storytelling, and dynamic engagement, students learn about the power that lies within them, how they can discover it, and how they can use it to make positive changes in their lives.
