Joshua Charles Victor Schloss
I began youth work at age 17. As a 'troubled teen' myself, I was passionate about providing rich, safe and healthy recreation opportunities for other youth. I volunteered at local youth groups including the PCYC and during the day would facilitate social and emotional wellbeing programs in local high schools for youth charities. At age 24, I purchased my first business and began hiring disadvantaged young people to help me grow my business. I wrote a values program and used it to induct the young people I would hire to a healthy values framework that would enable them to have success in their chosen profession. In 2011, the high school local to my business asked me to bring the values program into the school and begin working with students whose attendance was low. After almost 8 years in the same business, I sold my business and started working for a charity as the National Program Coordinator and used my networks and programs to see people of all ages begin to enhance their values. After multiple public speaking opportunities/engagements, I saw an opportunity to begin running programs in schools and registered training organisations (RTO's) as a motivational speaker. Today, I run programs in schools across the South East of QLD alongside Seminars, Corporate Culture Building and community involvement. I am a Father of a daughter, two sons, a husband and a Business Owner on a personal mission to help others enhance their values and grow into their vast potential.
