Leadership Conference

My Youth Leadership Conference

Walter Jordan is the founder of the Walter Jordan’s Youth Leadership Conference, an annual conference for young men ages 13-18. The leadership conference was developed by Walter Jordan more than five years ago in response to a request by many parents for him to speak to their children on a variety of topics.

Walter Jordan decided the best way to address this need was to create a two-day conference for young men. The conference focuses on teaching life and leadership skills to young men in a “locker room” style format.

During the conference, numerous topics are discussed. Real-life scenarios are discussed and debated. The young men are encouraged to speak freely and ask questions.

Youth Conference 1

Over the course of two-days, the conference participants open up and begin to demonstrate their new mastery of the leadership concepts presented. It’s a beautiful thing to witness!

In case you are wondering, here are the dates of the next leadership conference which will be held VIRTUALLY:

2023 Dates TBA

Conference Theme: Expect Greatness

The conference features speakers from all numerous professional backgrounds as a way of exposing the young men to different careers, general diversity and potential mentors.

Youth Conference 2

 Many of the young men that Walter has mentored in the past return as speakers and or conference facilitators. It brings new meaning to giving back and each one, teach one.

“If I have never told you, I appreciate you for impacting my life the way you did. Your wise words got me through life; sometimes you used basketball to show me how to be a man. You taught me toughness and responsibility, manners and all. Yes I was young and a lot flew over my head at the time, but please know I heard everything you said in those gyms hotels and even my brothers’ homes from time to time. I can’t tell you how many situations I’ve been in and the relevance of your words make so much since it was scary.I love you man and thank you for more than basketball; coach, thanks for your wisdom.”
