Keynote Speakers

Keynote Speakers Kevin learned the importance of nurturing dreams at an early age aer overcoming a difficult childhood. It was the struggle of his childhood that gave him the fuel and s$mulated the work ethic necessary to earn a baseball scholarship and graduate from the University of Utah. Aer gradua$ng, Kevin played two years of professional baseball in Canada. Today he is an interna$onal speaker, trainer, author, entrepreneur and execu$ve producer. Kevin takes the opportunity to touch lives very seriously. He has delivered messages for organiza$ons such as Hewle, Packard, AT&T, Cal Trans, Medtronic, The Olympic Training Center, Colonial Life Insurance, Farmers Insurance, Keller Williams, The March of Dimes and Disneyworld’s Wide World of Sports to name a few.

Kevin Bracy

Kevin has been privileged to speak at over 900 middle schools, high schools and colleges, to over 500,000 students across America where he teaches teens his formula for SUCCESS and how to discover their GREATNESS. He was voted the #1 high school and college speaker by counselors and students 6 years in a row, and the #1 speaker for the Character Combine for the last 2 years. Kevin's proudest accomplishments are his 14-year marriage to Jessica Bracy, as well as his three children: KendraJae, 18 (dancer, singer, and actress), Kobe, 11 (speaker, nego$ator, intellectual), and Kaleb (the Bracy’s guardian angel since 2005).

Colin Wilson

Colin Wilson is a Senior Educator with the St. Louis Science Center and has overseen the Youth Exploring Science program for 3 years, and coordinates a chemistry outreach grant called Mystery of Ma,er. The Youth Exploring Science (YES) program and Mystery of Ma,er both promote the Saint Louis Science Center's mission "to ignite and sustain lifelong science and technology learning throughout the community." In an effort to do so, the YES program works with 250 underprivileged teenagers throughout the course of their high school career, providing them with an inquiry based learning environment that focuses on science, mathema$cs, and technology. These teens par$cipate in, as well as create, their own projects centered around science and technology in an informal environment. Also as a part of the program teens gain professional, academic, and real world skills that assist in building self-confidence and personal success. YES teens are recruited from over twenty partnered community based organiza$ons who are commi,ed to serving low-income families throughout the St. Louis area. They interact directly with these organiza$ons and community partner members to help facilitate science events and ac$vi$es.

Workshop Descrip'on

This training will teach poten'al Advisors how to complete the Advisor instrument, coach candidates as they put together their Resource File and support the candidate as they prepare for their Youth Development Creden'al assessment. This workshop will examine the roots of prejudice and explore useful strategies to respond to and interrupt bias incidents in the early childhood and early school-age se7ngs. Par'cipants will gain a greater understanding of issues concerning iden'ty and personal bias, and will develop an understanding of how the messages they received as young children impact their lives today. Do you use student input when planning ac'vi'es for your a<erschool programs? Using the thoughts and ideas of students to guide the direc'on of your a<erschool program ac'vi'es can make a big difference in keeping those students involved, engaged, and bringing their friends! This workshop will demonstrate the how, where and when student input can easily be used in program planning. Come prepared to play card and dice games that focus on pre-algebra, algebra concepts, coordinate geometry, opera'ons, integers, frac'ons, decimals, percentages, data management and more. Par'cipants will learn how to adapt games to meet the needs of all students and how to implement the games into their regular and a<erschool programs. Do you have your elevator speech prepared? Can you clearly ar'culate the goals and outcomes of your program if given the opportunity? This workshop will provide you with the tools to effec'vely promote and market your program for sustainability. This session will have informa'on that can be your 'cket to professional development in Missouri. The travel i'nerary includes an overview of the current training and educa'onal offerings, answers to ques'ons regarding the recent detour for training approval, and a birds-eye view of the vision for an integrated informal and formal professional development system.
