TIP: HAVE BRANDON SPEND MULTIPLE DAYS SPEAKING TO MULTIPLE SCHOOLS TO SAVE BIG!


Student leadership speaker Brandon Lee White speaking to students


1. SPEECHES:


A. OWN IT!

Ownership starts with having a clear vision of who you are, what you want, and how hard you’re willing to work. Brandon shares his struggles including mental health and bullying, and then points to the leaders and decisions that turned it all around. Expect lots of funny crowd interaction, thought-provoking examples, moving stories, and a powerful spoken word presentation. Students leave with a new sense of ownership in life and leadership and the motivation to make it happen. (This speech can include topics of leadership, character education, goal-setting, and mental health.)


B. KNOW YOUR LINE

Substance abuse can destroy potential. Goals, dreams, and lives can be ruined through addiction, accidents, and destructive choices. Brandon presents this topic with a balance of fun and seriousness while helping them know their line in which they won’t cross.


C. ANTI-BULLYING

It’s hard to bullying someone the closer you get to them. Brandon brings students together with fun exercises, thoughtful demonstrations of empathy, and sharing of affirmations. This is a powerful and moving presentations that help heal and build a more unified school culture.



2. WORKSHOPS:


A. LIVE A FUL”FILLED” LIFE

Participants create moments that matter by filling their “buckets.” There are three buckets. The red bucket is for love, which is building and pouring into relationships. The yellow bucket is for joy, which is finding and pouring into your purpose(s). The blue bucket it for peace, which is learning to be content. Filling these three buckets teaches students to live a balanced and fulfilled life.


B. LET IT MOVE (THE DANCE WORKSHOP)

Participants learn leadership through ballroom dance. Positive communication, risk-taking, teamwork, goal-setting, and discipline are all covered in a way that will stick in your memory. It’s a fun and educational way to “break the ice” and get youth moving. This workshop can include total crowd participation or select volunteers depending upon request and space availability. (Maximum occupancy contingent upon space and sound equipment)


“You were able to take 300 students and form a team with a unified purpose! Getting an entire gym full of Teens to work together was phenomenal!”

—Superintendent (Pratt School District, KS)



C. THE “OWN IT” PERSONALITY TEST

Have you ever wondered why you mesh with certain people and clash with others? In this workshop, participants complete the “Own It” personality test to help them increase personal clarity. Exercises and acting out real-life situations will make students laugh and help them make the most of their unique personality while effectively relating and leading others. They also learn to respond to “dark personalities” in a positive way to resolve conflict.


D. YOUR LIFE STORY

Students watch short clips from popular movies and are challenged with detecting the conflict, motivation, and resolution of each scene. Movie trivia is also included. Students are asked, “If your life is a movie, what conflict is your character going through, what’s their motivation, and how would you like to see them resolve or overcome? What resources or other characters are you possibly overlooking? This workshop helps students step outside of themselves and examine their past, present, and future in a fun and enlightening way.


E. FACING FEAR

Some fear is good like being afraid to touch fire. Some fear is fun like watching a sports game and not knowing the outcome. Fire is like fire, it can be good and fun, but it can also be harmful is not managed. Participants develop a positive mindset in negative circumstances, build confidence through actions in times of uncertainty, utilize resources around them and within them to overcome, and become a leader in times of crises.



3. STUDENT LEADER TRAINING (1-3 hours)

In this training, student leaders are introduced to the “Own It Curriculum” and receive a copy of “Don’t Be A Lamesauce”.

Students leave with a plan of action to “Own It!” in their school!
