UGO YES PROGRAM. – Empowering At-Risk Youth

Nick Ugoalah’s Youth Empowerment Seminar, UGO YES, gives young people the hope they need to imagine a happy, successful future and tools to make it happen.

He understands how much energy a troubled youth expends just surviving or in fear. As a youngster, Nick lived in fear, helplessness and despair, a victim of abuse. In his dark and narrow world, there was no place for dreams or ambition. Later, when he left his home and was placed with a loving foster family, lights came on for him. With the family’s support and guidance, he surprised himself – transforming from an angry, directionless young man to, a high performing student and elite athlete.

Real-world help from someone who’s been there

Young people, who are often suspicious and cynical, connect with Nick. His powerful physique and dynamic presentation intrigue them, and they recognize themselves in his story. He proves that even in the worst of circumstances, they can get unstuck. Nick gives kids a sense of purpose and direction, a way to heal and get past obstacles to achieve their own greatness. Youth become refocused and activated to tackle their education and goals after hearing Nick Speak.

As he visits schools, youth conferences and jails, Nick’s positive example of excellence, discipline and persistence changes the lives of Youth. He is a professional level member of the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers, has an BSc and an MBA, he is an Executive Coach and is especially committed to helping disadvantaged youth get back on track. He also partners with individuals to find their focus and achieve their goals, coaches’ organization members to succeed through teamwork and trains corporate groups to handle challenges creatively.
