Inspiration with a message that’s easy to catch
I believe that it’s important to not only have a strong message but to also get kids moving. Connecting a message with an activity is a great way to get oxygen to the brain and to reinforce that message. Currently, I offer two presentations, a session for parents, frisbee workshops and book readings. Each presentation for kids includes the Unplugg’d Challenge and I can do more than one group book reading, depending on the number of students. I can run multi-day frisbee workshops depending on the number of students at your school and can even run multiple workshops for the same group.
I base my presentations and my messages around a few core virtues. I believe that character education through various forms of literacy is the way to have an impact on future generations. The core virtues I talk about are:
Each presentation is typically done first thing in the morning to the entire school in the gym. A typical day looks like:
I’m flexible on the length of the workshops although I would recommend not shorter than 25 minutes. I’m also flexible on the number of students per workshop although I would recommend 30-40 students at a time. My goal is to have every student in your school hear my message in the assembly and have a chance to participate in a frisbee workshop. I connect the assembly to the workshops by talking about my Unplugg’d Challenge at the end of each workshop.
The Parents session is after school in the evening, is roughly 90 minutes and costs $100.
I’ve had experience being bullied as a kid because I used to figure skate and then again later in life when I first got into frisbee, I was made fun of often for being different. I’ve worked as a facilitator with the organization Dare to Care and have learned a lot from what they taught me. I have also been speaking with Tina Long for a few years. Tina’s son Tyler committed suicide from being bullied so bad, and was one of the children featured in the movie Bully. She runs the non-profit Everything Starts With 1, and she has been a valuable resource helping me tweak my message in order to be more effective in my assemblies.
If you are interested in ordering frisbees, please let me know the quantity so I can prepare a quote.
