  • AWARD-WINNING SPEAKER & BESTSELLING AUTHOR
    Statistically, Josh Shipp should be dead, in jail, or homeless. But his success as a preeminent author, speaker, and global youth empowerment expert is living proof of the power of one caring adult. A former at-risk foster kid turned youth advocate, Josh is renowned for the documentary TV series on A&E that followed his groundbreaking work with youth and families. He has written two national bestsellers to date, “The Grown-Up’s Guide to Teenage Humans” – winner of the Nautilus Gold Award for Parenting & Family – and “The Teen’s Guide to World Domination.”
  • FROM FOSTER CARE TO HARVARD
    Thanks to the support of teachers, counselors, and a wonderful set of foster parents, Josh went on to be listed on Inc. Magazine’s 30 under 30 list, and is now a postgraduate student at Harvard himself, further honing his skills in persuasive communication. Josh is regularly called on by OPRAH, CNN, FOX, The New York Times, 20/20, Good Morning America, and others to provide commentary on common challenges faced by parents and teachers.
  • A MESSAGE DELIVERED WITH HEART & HUMOR
    Josh talks directly and with humor about topics that can make or break a young person’s success. Often difficult for others to cover, Josh has an uncanny ability to take them on willingly and makes them his own – going one step further to help you make them your own. As someone who’s been there and done that, he is able to talk convincingly about all of the things that make raising, helping and educating a young person so excruciatingly difficult. His style and content are both youth tested and parent approved.
