LEARN ABOUT ELI SPEAKS
Growing up in Newark, NJ I learned to appreciate different things in life. The caring adults, neighbors, teachers, and those that worked in many of the community programs were the real change agents in the lives of so many youths. My love and responsibility for the community is a direct result of what these people poured into my life toward a positive path. The African Proverb “It takes a village to raise a child” continues to embody how I lead. I realize that to sustain positive growth in youth I had to build and strengthen the network between kids and guardians to move all toward a positive path of change.
As a sought after speaker Mr. Glenn’s inner city roots give him a unique perspective in motivating communities toward hope and change.

Mr. Glenn is such a dynamic speaker that he has been invited to speak to incoming 7th and 9th grade students for the past four years. His message of perseverance and consistency really resonates with the youth because he understands the challenges they face; he addresses peer pressure and conflicting messages from parents, school officials, and social media and offers a message of resilience to overcome these challenges and encouragement to harness their potential. Mr. Glenn has been and continues to be an inspiration to middle and high school students.
Elijah Glenn is true inspiration and motivator. His ability to speak to the youth and get their attention is amazing. He left a great impression on the youth, they look up to him as a big brother now! I can’t wait to work with him again!
I would like to take this time to thank this awesome brother Elijah Glenn for speaking to our youth at FOJBC Ministries. Your message left a powerful & positive influence on the youth in my ministry. Not only the youth but the adults was truly blessed. As the Pastor of FOJBC, I was honored to have a dynamic speaker like Elijah come and make such an impact in the lives of our youth. His influence on them made things easier for me conveying my message. Awesome brother!
