YCNL School Tour
YCNL wishes to partner with and resource local leaders to invest in school communities. By addressing topics like bullying, leadership, character, choices, and self-worth, we believe the assemblies add value to school communities by building on the Character Education and Safe and Caring Schools initiatives of the Newfoundland & Labrador English School District, and by supporting the ongoing efforts of teachers, counsellors, administrators, and staff.
Preston’s sincere desire is to help youth overcome adversity. He excels in helping troubled kids, because he shows them acceptance, love, and respect. The more troubled they are, the more success he seems to have in relating to them and empowering the message of hope. His goal is to inspire the leaders of tomorrow to overcome life’s challenges.
William had a very challenged childhood growing up in the hard knock town of Atlantic city were he lost both his parents by the age of fourteen. He realized the key to his success would come from what he calls the two E’s to success that he shares with students all around the country (effort and education). William reminds his audiences that in life it’s not about how you start but how you finish. He uses his NFL rookie year as a prime example. William began to make some bad choices and mistakes. “The pain of my up bringing began to catch up with me and as an unguided young man I didn’t know how to deal with it, that is why I decided to dedicate my life after Football to guiding and inspiring our next generation”
