February 23 - All School Assembly featuring Matt Wilhelm
Matt Wilhelm’s elementary school assembly program is one of the most popular school assemblies in the country. He speaks and performs at over 300 different schools PER YEAR. His program is perfectly aligned with PBIS, Social-Emotional Learning, Olweus, and Second Step programs.
Matt Wilhelm’s school assembly program is designed to entertain, educate, and empower. He creatively mixes BMX bike tricks with his own inspiring stories of beating the odds en route to becoming a BMX National Champion. In addition to his BMX skills, Matt is also a gifted storyteller. He is FUNNY. He is INTERESTING. He is CAPTIVATING. What makes these stories powerful is that they are from his own personal experiences. Kids can apply his messages about respect, responsibility, and resilience to their own everyday lives.
This is not only the most exciting school assembly you will ever host, but also the one of the best messages your kids will hear as well. Matt Wilhelm is a nationally recognized speaker on the topic of bullying. He appeared in Cartoon Network’s award winning documentary Stop Bullying: Speak Up with President Obama.
However, his program is more than just an anti-bullying “Don’t do that” type of assembly. He focuses more on social-emotional learning. Students will learn about empathy, resilience, and respect. His main focus is not on the kids who bully or even on their targets, but rather on everyone else… the bystanders. Those are the students who have the most power and can actually make a real and immediate difference. Matt transforms bystanders into heroes. His stories are truly unforgettable.
