“People need to know when you are speaking to youth, they are actually listening,” he says. “That’s why I feel every celebrity or everyone who has a platform should always reach out and speak with young people. Sometimes they just need to hear a positive word.”
Mitchell has had a busy season onscreen and offscreen. He is executive producer of a reboot of “All That,” the Nickelodeon comedy sketch show that launched his career. He also is featured Saturday mornings on CBS in “Best Friends FurEver with Kel Mitchell,” is an entrepreneur, is co-owner of the delicious “Good Burger” pop-up restaurant touring the country, and most recently was a member of the cast of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.”
“Being a dancer is like being an athlete,” says Mitchell, who danced all the way to the finals and finished in second place.
“Kel loves orange soda,” as his character in the sitcom “Kenan & Kel” always says, but closest to Mitchell’s heart is his work in the church.
“I love ministering to others, and I am so blessed to be able to do what I love, inspiring others through God’s word,” he says. “That’s what I love about NCRF and the Black College Expo. It’s a true ministry of helping young people find their way, and I am proud to be an ambassador for this movement.”
