UGO YES PROGRAM. – Empowering At-Risk Youth

Every young leader will face challenges that can lead to detours of self-doubt and negativity.  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

Nick’s message is geared for high school and college students.  Nick shares a dynamic roadmap to overcome adversity and challenges you to bring out the best in yourself and others.  Nick’s principles for success are based on real-life experiences and help young leaders excel in their relationships, family, work, school, peer pressure, leadership, and more!

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.  Nick shares powerful strategies and enlightening stories that inspire young leaders to follow their passion, use their gifts, live their purpose, enjoy the ride and make a significant impact on the world.
