Christian Moore
Session #2

Christian Moore is a renowned author, speaker, and licensed clinical social worker. Christian spent most of his childhood years on the streets near Washington, D.C. Due to learning disabilities, counselors informed him that college wasn’t an option. However, Christian became a well-respected recipient of a master’s degree. As a social worker in education, youth corrections, and a homeless program, Christian saw the need for a new approach and created WhyTry. He now speaks at more than 100 conferences a year and consults with thousands of school districts on lowering dropout rates, improving school climate, preventing bullying, and closing the achievement gap by teaching social and emotional education.
