Teens Taking Action will connect and offer real life lessons for students and adults. Our founder Zach Haney has dedicated his life to entrepreneurship and philanthropy. The goal we have is to inspire and empower as many young leaders as possible.

Zach can connect with students in a way that most motivational speakers cannot. He has seen what works and can teach leadership skills in an interactive way. Teens Taking Action was founded back in 2010 as a non-profit organization.

It all started with a free carnival for the guests at the Topeka Rescue Mission. Zach wished to do something for the homeless community in our city. After a couple weeks of planning the first carnival was a huge hit. Nearly two years later he created his own event rental company.

Zach relates to young people and enjoys sharing his message at schools, youth conferences, and leadership events everywhere.  Currently Zach is a freshman at Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas and continues to run both Teens Taking Action and his company the Carnival Guy.
