The Power Within!

Understanding, hope, and acceptance come from breaking down our walls, honoring who we are, and inspiring the Power Within!

Let’s get started!

This school wide event is a unique approach to getting real and providing understanding of experiences such as mental health, diversity, and equity. Giving them a chance to talk about the real issues they are preoccupied with every day.  When personal ownership of self and school climate are strengthened, students and staff begin to own new beliefs and let go of misconceptions.

Students share “if teachers only cared…”


While teachers think “if students were not so apathetic, everything would be ok…right?”


Wrong!  They need MORE!

Our students require more from us than just academic support to succeed in school.

Loneliness and social isolation haunt our learning communities as half of our society reports feeling alone most days.

Let your students take the lead!

Let’s give your school a way to feel more connected and see their community with a new set of eyes.  Let’s help them show up every day inspired to be their best selves and do their best work!

I started to look at myself differently and started focusing on more than just my needs. I grew as a person for the first time and really started caring for others.

The Power Within is much more than a day. It becomes an opening for your school to lower barriers that often divide students; addressing real issues through open dialogue, to be accepting of diversity and create inclusive school communities.
