October 9, 2018 – Featuring Guest Speaker Shane Feldman
Shane Feldman is a renowned youth advocate, TV personality, motivational speaker and critically acclaimed producer.
As a child of divorce, Shane was constantly moving with his mom, lacked consistent role models, experienced relentless bullying, and felt socially isolated. He had moved upwards of eight times before entering high school. After moving to yet another brand new city, Shane was rejected by his first choice school and entered 9th grade desperate for a positive experience, but instead felt lost and invisible. With the help of a very committed school counselor, Shane became active in local clubs, theater, and volunteerism. Getting involved turned Shane’s life around, and inspired him to launch a school project to help his peers find their passion through community involvement. What started as a small project remarkably went viral, and has since evolved into the global phenomenon known as COUNT ME IN.
As Founder and CEO of COUNT ME IN, Shane is best known as the visionary behind the world’s largest youth-led organization that has impacted over 10-million youth in more than 100 countries. Over the past decade, COUNT ME IN has inspired tens of thousands of youth-led volunteer projects, equating to over 100-million hours of community service, worth $2.4 billion. Shane is a survivor of betrayal, rejection, and social isolation. His world opened up and took shape after he stopped searching outside himself for answers, and instead took action. Shane’s driving purpose is to help uncover every person’s passion, motivation, and courage.
Shane has been featured by Larry King, Dr. Oz, Forbes, People Magazine, and was named on Youth In Motion’s 20 Under 20 list. Shane has spoken to audiences around the world, and he has been recognized by President Obamaʼs volunteer initiative and The United Nations.
