A Message from Justin

The talk is appropriate for all ages but particularly relevant to 13 to 16 year olds and their parents.  Mr. Veatch discusses what happened to Justin and how young people can take better care of themselves.  In addition, he offers advice on how facing adversity can be used as a tool for the good of all.  The fee for Mr. Veatch’s appearances, less his expenses, go entirely to The Justin Veatch Fund for its programs and funding scholarships.

What People are Saying:

“…your style was so believable, and, as a parent, I felt so connected. Using pictures from Justin’s life, especially the DARE card and pledge touched me greatly. When students sign that pledge in the elementary grades, they truly mean it; but, so many times something happens that take them away from their true dreams. I left your talk feeling that your family’s story could be the story of any of our families. I also tend to watch students’ eyes, and theirs were riveted on you. You never got “preachy” nor tried to scare the kids; you just told your story. Despite all of the sadness, you left me with a message of hope, and the work you do in Justin’s memory is so meaningful. Thank you for having the courage to share Justin’s story.”
