Amplify Kindness & Inclusion at Your School

This presentation shows students how to be confident and courageous.  We teach kids that their life has value and purpose.  Peter shows them how he embraces his differences using our "10 Ways to Rock Your Life."  Confident students stand up to bullies and don't succumb to peer pressure.  This assembly includes lots of guitar playing!  We offer two levels for grades 6-8 and 9-12.  The middle school version includes classroom activities that reinforce our message.  Assemblies last 30-45 minutes.

This presentation builds student confidence, so they have the courage to be an upstander.  Peter shares his life story, including his medical journey.  This is discussed in a light, storytelling narrative that includes some medical humor and guitar playing!  Students learn there is a difference between being friendly (bystander) and a friend (upstander).  They learn to think about how what they say and do impacts everyone around them, and that kindness is one of the easiest things we can do to help one another.  Assemblies typically last 40-50 minutes and include music.

This presentation compares Peter's Real-Life story to that of the fictional character, Auggie, in the book Wonder by R.J. Palacio.  This is similar to our "Amplify Kindness" presentation but with references to Wonder woven throughout.  Students learn there is a difference between being friendly (bystander) and a friend (upstander).  They learn to think about how what they say and do impacts everyone around them, and that kindness is one of the easiest things we can do to help one another.  Assemblies typically last 40-50 minutes and include music.

The emphasis for this age group is on overcoming fear of disabilities and differences, sharing how much we have in common, and talking about feelings.  Students are encouraged to look for signs of loneliness and to take simple action.  Asking, "How is your day going?" shows a classmate that you noticed them and that you care.  This presentation is no longer than 30 minutes and includes guitar playing that engages younger students.
