Odyssey for Youth has spoken to thousands of students and has identified ways to make students think differently and bring out their potential. Ask about our keynote programs or let us tailor a program to your schools needs. All of our programs are experiential and interactive.

Campus cohesion odyssey

A cohesive campus is the goal of progressive educational institutions. The Campus Cohesion Odyssey is designed to break down cliques and unite students behind healthy common goals.


Egos, cliques, friendships, diversity and campus norms are just a few of the realities your students will need to manage as leaders. At the Leadership Odyssey, students will learn new skills in these areas and become more powerful as role-models for other students.

Meet Jeremy Bates ("The HOPE DEALER")

Since 2007, Jeremy has been traveling the world as the Hope Dealer, offering the most relevant, engaging, powerful presentations on the market. The Hope Dealer infuses his programs with a unique blend of live music and personal stories. Chalked full of humor and humility, Jeremy is able to create an environment cloaked in authenticity -  where it is cool to HOPE more, LEARN more, LOVE more and DO more. Utilizing his incredible musical talent to "communicate the unknowable", Jeremy sends audiences out the door with an experience they will never forget.


No more didactic lectures or powerpoint presentations. If you are looking to enhance an existing conference agenda with some spark, look no further. Revolution Speak can create customized workshops to reach any number of desired outcomes.

Hope Dealers Unite

We need individual and social change and we need it now. This presentation will use large group activities and music to breakdown participants’ personal barriers and perceptions, and create an environment where visions of change can occur. The workshop outlines leadership qualities that must be incorporated at the individual level, and at the group/community level, in order to create the changes we are seeking.
