In this presentation, Brooks Griffin will inspire each participant to tap into their "YOU", so that they can improve their engagement with children, youth and families from marginalized communities. Brooks will share his personal stories of his growing up with mental health challenges, his journey as a youth organizer & Father Advocate, and addressing social & racial equity with his dream job at The 2021 NBA Champion Milwaukee Bucks!

After being admitted to a mental health complex as a teen student-athlete to achieve his dream of winning a NBA championship, Brooks now inspires other leaders on how to achieve success in the face of stress & burnout.

Brooks uses his experiences, learned lessons, and evidence-informed approaches to rejuvenate his audiences to experience their full significance, potential and purpose.
