Setting Your Roles Can Lead to Massive Success.

Setting Your Roles Can Lead to Massive Success.

The original Opportunity Guide (OG), Edward DeJesus reveals how defining your roles can lead to massive personal and professional success. About Edward DeJesus More than 100,000 educators, policy-makers, and young adults unanimously agree that DeJesus’ message about the importance of life, freedom, and future economic opportunity is an important message that all young people need to hear. Born and raised in the Bronx, NY, DeJesus is a top speaker at over 20 major youth conferences each year. As a former VIBE magazine editor puts it: “DeJesus’ message hits home with the weight of a project building falling on your head. And once every brick has touched down, audiences will have a clear idea of what must be done.” Thirty years of experience in the trenches in some of the toughest neighborhoods and policy-making environments has prepared DeJesus to reveal the true social, political, and cultural dynamics that keep so many youth from educational and workforce success. Through creative and inspirational storytelling mixed with cold hard facts, DeJesus argues that every community has the seeds to set up the structures that make a difference in their youth’s future. And, through his message, audiences learn how to make these seeds grow. Edward DeJesus is the President of DeJesus Solutions. Their mission is “No More Disconnected Youth.” In the U.S. today, 4.6 million youth are disconnected from work and school and millions more are struggling to hold on. DeJesus and his team create policy and programmatic solutions to build future economic opportunities for the most marginalized youth and young adults. DeJesus is a W.K. Kellogg Foundation National Fellow and holds an MS in management and urban policy analysis from the New School for Social Research. He is the author of Making Connections Work and several other titles on youth success. His work has been featured on NPR, in the Washington Post, the Baltimore Sun and the Miami Herald. He has blended his love for reaching youth with a special ability to impact policy by conducting research on effective programs that help youth acquire and maintain jobs. DeJesus served as a youth policy expert for the Sar Levitan Center for Youth Policy at John Hopkins University and served on the Task Force on Employment Opportunities for young offenders for the U.S. Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. He has served as a consultant to the Annie E. Casey Foundation, Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, the U.S. Dept. of Labor, and the National Education Association. In his spare time, DeJesus competes in Ironman triathlons.
