Keynote Speaker: Pam Stenzel
In 1964 a fifteen-year-old girl was raped, became pregnant, and decided to carry her unborn child to term. Five months after the baby girl was born, in an act of courage and love the young mother provided her child a better environment by giving her to an adoptive family. That child was Pam Stenzel. She is the oldest of 8 children… 7 adopted…1 biological, and her extended family includes 38 adopted children in all.
For years, Pam worked on the “front lines” as Director of Alpha Women’s Center, a counseling center for women undergoing crisis pregnancies. Her experiences taught her that before teen pregnancy and STD rates could decline, attitudes of teens toward sex first had to change. Desiring to bring about that change, Pam started speaking nationally full-time and is in great demand both in the U.S.A. and in other countries such as Mexico, Australia, Ireland, and Canada.
In 1993, at the request of parents, Pam developed a two-hour mixed media program on sexual abstinence. The response from students parents and was so overwhelming that Pam soon received requests to speak all over the Midwest.
Her public school curriculum “Abstinence by choice” and “Building Healthy Relationships” is now used worldwide in North and South America, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Africa and Ireland.
Pam now travels both domestically and internationally, speaking to over 500,000 teens a year. Surprisingly many of her requests to speak come from teens themselves. She has been a guest on numerous national TV and Radio programs, including appearances on Fox News Network’s “Hannity & Colmes Show,” ABC Radio’s “Sean Hannity Show,” “The Dr. Laura Show,” CBN’s “The 700 Club,” and ABC Television’s “Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher.”
She is also the Founder of Enlighten Communications, Inc., an organization focused and committed to the betterment of children and families in America and around the world.
