Poet Jordan

"I’ve screened my films all over the world and my experience collaborating with Jordan and his team was by far one of the most memorable.  Jordan created a space for genuine community engagement that fostered incredible social dialogue.  He is a community leader in the truest sense of the words."

Motivational Assemblies and Keynotes


My name is Jordan Chaney and I am a Poet and Motivational Speaker. I often

find myself in front of hundreds or thousands of young people that have

challenges, setback, dreams and hopes.


I share my personal story and how finding and sticking to my life's purpose helped me build the resiliency to survive traumas and the mental health challenges that come with them.


There's power in our personal stories, and in my assemblies and keynotes, my intention is to help others along their journey, wherever they are in life, to overcome, to bounce back, to hang on, to live fuller lives.

“Jordan Chaney’s presentation was so much fun and humbling. We sometimes get so caught up in routines that aren’t healthy and his presentation helped bring back the positive outlook on life and reminded me why I’m in this profession. He is a great example of not letting your barriers and fears define you. He reminded us all to continue life with a purpose, how it’s never too late to dream and the importance of knowing what you want and going for it.”

Theater of the Oppressed Workshop Facilitator 


Have you ever been in argument with someone and as soon as you walk away from the feud all of the sudden you have all the things you should’ve said right at your disposal but for some reason you couldn’t think of them in the heat of the moment? The French call that ‘the wit of the staircase’, Daniel Goleman would say that you were ‘emotionally hi-jacked’, and Agusto Boal, creater of the world renown Theater of the Oppressed forum theater created life-changing tools & practices that can and do turn the ‘spectators into protagonists’! This workshop is for those that have to navigate communities where racism, politics, and social justice (or lack there of) are inescapable.
