Starting With Me - Starting Today

Recognizing, educating, and promoting the benefits of good character to students, parents, and communities.

"The world's a mess. Why should I study hard who said there is a future?"
'If I had a solid family, I could be somebody and do great things, but I don't."

'Everybody's doing it, from drugs to sex. What's wrong with wanting to fit in?"
- Statements from today's students

Over the course of six months, this student leadership program will train students to assist others in overcoming many of the very harmful issues facing today's students.

This National Character Education Foundation (NCEF) Peer-to-Peer Mentoring/Leadership program was designed and will be administered by Award-Winning author and Teen Talk Show Host, Bill Sanders. The program will connect adults of influence with groups of students who will engage in sessions focusing on the following areas:

  • The Art of Becoming Life
  • Understanding other people's pain
  • Taking care of myself
  • I can make a difference

Optional evening parental symposiums are available to combine with the student sessions, where parents will learn the objectives to "Opportunity Parenting".

Sessions and materials are designed for students in elementary, middle, or high school grades, and each program
contains age appropriate materials and content
