Jonathan Hood, a former linebacker for the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League (CFL) joined the University of Guelph-Humber in Fall 2017. Hood was led to a career in teaching by his passion for people. This same passion has led him to create a reputation around Canada as a dynamic motivational speaker, a passionate youth mentor, an intense leadership consultant, and a successful entrepreneur. In 2010, he opened his first personal training business which has evolved into a personal coaching business. Hood mentors university students, works with business owners and executives to shift to a higher level of influential leadership. In 2012, he launched The Ahead of the Game Youth Mentoring Program, a leadership program for “at-risk” youth. Hood has recently returned to the University of Western Ontario where he is pursuing a PhD in Leadership and Business Management.
