About the Speaker

Josh Shipp

Josh Shipp

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 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.

Thanks to the support of teachers, counselors and a fantastic set of foster parents, Josh went on to be named to Inc. Magazine’s 30 under 30 list and completed his postgraduate studies at Harvard. He has written two national bestsellers, The Grown-Up’s Guide to Teenage Humans and The Teen’s Guide to World Domination.

To serve his ultimate goal of reaching as many youth as possible, Josh trains other speakers through Youth Speaker University, helping them use their own stories to make an impact.

Josh’s story is captivating, heartfelt and living proof that it only takes one caring adult to change the trajectory of a child’s life.
