Are you looking for a powerful high school assembly, a youth conference, a successful high school speaker, a powerful staff program, a middle school assemblies, a speaker for kids and teens? If yes read this:
Every high school deals with different issues� one is facing school violence, another substance abuse, then some schools have a high rate of teen pregnancy, and others school dropout � some feel they are dealing with all of these problems! Then there are some schools who insist they are facing none of these problems, however their students have an unhealthy pressure to succeed, the overachieving kids who have threatened or even attempted suicide!
Are we teachers or are we therapists? Everything has changed in schools! While some politicians are �trying to help� by mandating test scores, and performance evaluations � the kids are falling through the cracks with huge personal issues! What should we do to effectively educate the children and still deal with all the issues they bring on the campus?
There are some amazing curriculums and programs that have proven effective. Old standard youth programs like Scouts, Boy�s and Girl�s clubs, and 4-H continue to develop the best in kids! Leadership programs like DECA, FCCLA, VICA, FBLA, TSA, FFA, and HOSA have guided many teens into a successful professional life out of high school! Very progressive student programs like S.A.D.D., Teen Institutes, Youth to Youth, PRIDE, even the elementary program DARE have made profound impact on students making healthy choices.
We have known forever that �it takes a village�� unfortunately not everyone in town wants to be part of raising our kids. Nevertheless parents and other adults have found programs that have allowed their involvement in the school whether it is the PTO / PTA (Parent Teacher Organization), Big Brothers Big Sisters or even groups like M.A.D.D. (Mother Against Drunk Drivers).
Everyone seems to be looking for the �magic pill,� the single answer to all of our problems� there is no such thing. It takes all of these solutions and a lot of other efforts to even begin to address these problems.
There is one thing that all of these solutions have in common� at one time or another every one of these programs have brought in a professional speaker. Motivational or otherwise � speakers have the unique ability to get parents, teachers and students excited about making positive change.
I have spent the past ten years introducing people like you to Michael Scott Karpovich, Certified Speaking Professional, urging them to consider using him for staff inservices, student assemblies, parent and community programs. The response has been outstanding and we have been steadily booking programs for schools, associations, human service agencies and community groups well into 2006.
Although our calendar fills up quickly, there are still dates available for this upcoming program year. Because of the overwhelming response we have received, however, we felt an urgent need to tell you to call us NOW!
You can�t afford to make this crucial decision without real evidence that Michael really delivers what we promise. So just listen to what some of his clients had to say of his work:
You would never forgive me if I didn�t offer you this opportunity. . .
Although our calendar is filling up quickly, there are still dates available for this program year. Because of the overwhelming response we have received, we felt an urgent need to let you know so that you would not miss this opportunity...
You can host a program for your high school students, your middle school students (Becoming the Best Generation�), your elementary school students (Positive Peer Pressure�), your "at-risk" students (Never Let it Get the Best of Me! �), and your student leaders (Contagious Leadership�) -- all during the same day! But that is not all...
During that same day, you can offer a program for your staff on preventing burnout (The Art of Taking Care of Yourself�), or on the role of a great teacher (Teaching the Best Generation�). After school, you can sponsor another program for community leaders, local service clubs, your hospital or perhaps the local police (Leave a Legacy�). Then, if that isn�t enough, during the evening you can host a program for parents (Raising the Best Generation�) that will feature how to communicate with your children, the three "C�s" of effective discipline, and how to teach self-esteem to your child!
Storytelling, humor and high energy are all tools that Michael uses to not simply educate your students but engage them. This is a program they will not soon forget! Some will laugh, some will cry � but all will learn.
Whether he is speaking about substance abuse prevention, student leadership, self-esteem or his most popular topic -- resiliency skills� Michael�s message will make a difference. His programs will change the entire student body and its school environment. Wouldn�t it be great if kids were nicer to each other?!
Michael�s ability to connect with audiences of any age, to deliver a powerful message that doesn�t just inspire but changes people�s lives, and to offer programs with value at a cost-effective rate, is unparalleled by other speakers. His message will produce lasting results in your school system, association or community group, and he will work with you in a manner that is professional and flexible.
Don�t believe me... ask those who have hired Michael. I know that you can�t afford to make this crucial decision without real evidence that he will deliver what we promise. So just listen to what several recent clients had to say of his work:

You can provide your school and community with programming that will increase productivity, decrease apathy, and maintain perspective -if you act fast!
April and May are the months that most school programs are scheduled and confirmed; however, some schools have become wise to the fact that many of the good speakers are already booked by then, so they start programming efforts earlier. When you consider your programming needs, you must have powerful, effective and results-oriented programs.
YOU MUST CONSIDER:
1. A staff in-service that motivates, educates and entertains.
2. A speaker who can positively touch the most cynical staff, while warming the hearts of the most empathic.
3. Community programs that encourage the participation of parents and the whole community in the education of our children.
4. A speaker who has the experience and ability to speak not only to teachers, but also to school food service professionals, janitorial staff, bus drivers, secretarial staff, administration, board members, parents, and the community as a whole.
First, to make sure I am recommending the right speaker for you, let me ask you these questions:
If you answered "NO" to even one of these questions, the speaker I am about to introduce to you is not for you. Please read no further, do not bookmark this site and surf on to another site with my apologies.
However, if you answered "yes" to all of these questions, I have a speaker that is tailor-made for your school programs�

STANDING ROOM ONLY
In 1995, Michael was asked to present three sessions "The Art of Taking Care of Yourself �," "Becoming the Best Generation�," and "MTV Mentality�" for the Greater Edmonton Teachers Convention Association (GETCA) in Alberta, Canada.
