KEYNOTE SPEAKER: GABE SALAZAR
He attended Southwestern Assemblies of God University in Waxahachie, Texas, and pursued a degree in theology. Salazar worked in Texas at a school as an aide with at-risk and behavioral students, and he was a church youth pastor. He soon discovered an amazing talent to inspire teens to go after the very best that life has to offer, so he pursued professional youth speaking as a full-time career.
Today, Salazar travels all over the world speaking at schools, teen conferences and teen camps. Through the use of master storytelling, humorous stories about his youth and powerful skits, Salazar’s message inspires and motivates his audience to action. After Salazar’s keynote address, gang members have turned over their gang rags, a teen handed over a knife he intended to use on a boy who had been bullying him, and a teen mom told Salazar she was planning to take her life and her baby’s life, but after hearing his message she changed her mind.
Salazar considers his speaking career to be extremely fulfilling. He speaks at more than 160 schools and teen events a year. This year he crosses a milestone by celebrating his 2 millionth student reached. He’s recognized as America’s #1 Latino Youth Speaker by Popular Hispanics Magazine. Salazar’s message challenges teenagers and encourages them to make positive choices in their lives and to dream big.
Salazar lives in Los Angeles, California, with his wife, Nancy, and four children.
