"Keith Nord does not just do youth development as a job – he does it as a passion! I have had the opportunity to see him work with both high school and college age youth. At both levels he immediately connected with the kids and had their utmost attention. I believe Keith is a rare individual who not only believes in what he does for a living, but actually loves doing it. Keith cares about kids and they know it.
The evaluations from our high-school leadership camp continually echoes the fact that Keith had made more of an impact on them than any other presenter at the camp, and in some cases, in their lives!"
