Anthony Goulet is an author and transformational speaker who has been working in youth development for twenty-eight years. For more than a decade he was on-call 24/7 as a street-level Gang Interventionist and Street Outreach Worker, serving youth and young adults who are homeless, runaways, missing and trafficked. His full-time office was under bridges, within drug houses, abandoned buildings, and inside emergency rooms delivering God's light of love, hope and healing.
There have been many mentors and experiences that guided Anthony to his calling of love and service. When we allow them, all of our experiences can prepare us to be of optimal service to others. For years, Anthony had no idea why his childhood was riddled with separation from some of his biological family, moving from state to state, substance abuse, ambulances, emergency rooms, drug rehabs, a few years of stability, then everything falling apart once more. There are invaluable understandings and skills that come from experiencing the extremes of hopelessness and hope, homelessness and stability, trauma and triumph, yet we need others who are willing servants of the Creator to guide us in transforming the poisons of pain, loss and tragedy into healing medicines. Perhaps most importantly, we need to become someone who is a willing servant of the Creator to guide others in transforming poisons to healing medicines.
As a youth, Anthony experienced the powerful transformation and healing process of being a participant in youth programs. As his mentors and counselors helped him work through the pain, loss, tragedy, and trauma he experienced in his childhood, he uncovered something that he didn't know was there - a gift. With the guidance of highly skilled and passionate mentors and counselors, Anthony walked a sacred, healing journey from his head back to his heart. It is there, within his heart, where he remembered and reclaimed his vision, mission, dreams and purpose. In 1991 he began his path in working with youth and young adults, and continues to facilitate the sacred, healing journey from the head back to the heart with all those he is blessed to serve.
Anthony and his family reside in Texas where he works full-time as the Director of Training with an amazing nonprofit organization dedicated to healing the lives of youth, young adults and families. Due to his personal testimony, twenty-eight years of professional experience, and ability to articulate the process of transformation with passion and beautiful storytelling, Anthony continues to be sought by organizations as a transformational speaker, trainer and consultant.
