Rainbow Days is thrilled to have best-selling author Josh Shipp serve as the 2021 Pot of Gold Luncheon Keynote Speaker. Statistically, Josh should be dead, in jail or homeless.

A former at-risk foster kid turned youth advocate, Josh is renowned for the documentary TV series on A&E that followed his groundbreaking work with youth and families. He has written two national bestsellers to date and is regularly called on by OPRAH, CNN, FOX, The New York Times, 20/20, Good Morning America and others to provide commentary on common challenges faced by parents and teachers.
