Stand for Something

This powerful message is perfect for middle school students who often struggle with fitting in and having the confidence to stand up for themselves but for what they believe in. Like all of Keith’s messages they are customized for your particular goals. Keith’s goal is to empower students to not be normal, to not go with the status quo, but to believe in themselves and what they can do to make changes in their lives as well as others.

HELP Mission: Bullying Prevention Assembly

The H.E.L.P Mission is an assembly for schools who are looking to bring understanding to their campus and equip students to help others. H.E.L.P stands for honor, empower, lead and protect. This assembly encourages students to honor each other as human beings who deserve respect, to empower each other to have confidence in who they are, to lead each other by setting an example of kindness, and to protect those who are mistreated by stepping up and saying something. Students have the power to diffuse bullying by setting the standard of respect and then acting out that standard everyday. Saying something as simple as, “We don’t do that here,” can make a potential bully open their eyes to how they are treating others. Students have the power to stop this behavior, equip them so they can H.E.L.P.

Power of Parenting: Parent Night Keynote

Keith Hawkins also offers parent or community nights when he is in your area for more than one day. You can expand Keith’s message into the community by inviting your community and parents to take part in an hour long keynote covering communicating with teens and preteens as well the topics covered that day at your school. This is a great way to get more parent involvement. So many parents have good intentions when it comes to raising their children and although parents do their best, some realize they need more tools to assist them. Some parents have such a tough time raising their teenager they feel like giving up. My parenting workshop gives parents simple tools to aid them during this difficult challenge. When parents have real ways to communicate and understand their children they learn to stop majoring in the minors and focus on what really matters.
