Our vision is to create a movement in students and parents to end bullying and make it normal to treat each other with unprecedented amounts of kindness and respect.
This is going to take Parents partnering with Schools and Educators partnering with Bullying experts and Students creating a movement to live this out.
We must work together to bring change and to encourage students to choose kindness. If parents aren’t teaching and modeling this message and schools aren’t creating a climate and a culture that promotes it…bullying will continue to be a plague on our students.
How can Live Now Help?
1. We will educate and encourage students. Honestly, your students will love our assemblies and listen to us. Not only will they laugh, but they will listen and they will learn. Jason Raitz, our Director, has been speaking to students and adults for 18 years and he has the incredible gift to tell stories that not only grab the attention of his audience, but to call them to action and respond.
2. We will lift up your staff! We believe your school staff will be refreshed and encouraged as well. Let’s face it, if they’re not creating the climate and culture of kindness and acceptance…our schools won’t be as great as they can be.
3. We release students to change the world. Our hope and desire is to see student’s rise up to the challenge to overcome bullying and choose kindness. When they do, look out! They will change the world.
4. We truly want to partner. Our goal is not to make money, that’s why we’re a non-profit. We want to HELP! We want to encourage. We want to inspire. We want to educate. We want to be a catalyst. We want to help your school overcome bullying.
5. We believe Parents are the answer! In our workshops, we give parents the skills they need to teach their kids how to respond to bullying, overcome it and have healthy and strong relationships.
We can’t wait to start the conversation and we can’t wait to help.
~We had the great fortune of having Jason Raitz from Live Now present to our students at Hannah Beardsly Middle School on September 28th. Jason’s energy, enthusiasm and humor kept his audience engaged and entertained the entire time. Students could relate to the many stories he shared. I have listened and observered many assemblies over my 25 year career and this one captured the interest and hearts of our students!”
