Four different programs, each will be worth your time.
Since 2006, Kevin "Mr. Peace" Szawala has been traveling to schools and community centers, spreading his passionate message about peace, love, equality and tolerance to hundreds of thousands of people of all ages. He has created four different assembly programs, each focusing on a different topic: bullying, diversity, leadership and making positive life choices.
"This is one of the best assemblies I've seen in 18 years of teaching! No bells and whistles, just an amazing presenter and an amazing message!" - Jennifer Kennaugh, Black Elementary School
Look At The Heart First!
The need to treat everyone like you treat your best friend and see them for their heart first and foremost is vital. This concept, along with how one word or action, positive or negative, can change a life forever, is reinforced during this presentation. Knowing the biggest reason for this epidemic stems from hurt people who hurt people, this assembly seeks to provide a safe space by showing students how to overcome pain and become healed people who heal people.
Need Human Kindness!
Learned in the first “Bullying” assembly, etched on all of our palms with the lines of each hand is the letter 'M', which stands for 'Miracle', and upside down 'W' for 'Worthy'. This talk aims to reinforce how unique each person is by respecting our differences on the inside, as well as the outside. This world needs more human kindness and that's exactly what appreciating those around us starts to accomplish when we show unconditional love, compassion, and empathy.
Positive Life Choices
Be Your Best Self!
Many schools request this theme closer to state testing time to motivate students to do their best and give their greatest effort. Not only do the students come to realize their full potential, they begin to comprehend that the opposite of success is not failure, rather giving up. Just like the shirt worn for this performance reads, the words "Keep Your Head Up" are upside down intentionally to serve as a reminder to always think positive no matter our circumstances.
Passion To Purpose!
The sign of a true leader is found by looking at one's character and who they truly want to be remembered for. By placing an emphasis on people first and things second, the community will understand what it means to lead by example thru living lives devoted to building life-long relationships and doing what makes them come alive. If you have a pulse, you have a purpose, and this program encourages students to use their passions to positively impact this world.
