About the Program

Through clean comedy, inspiring real-life stories, and evidence-based techniques, Jeff shares how treating his bullies the way he wanted to be treated literally transformed his life after years of being bullied at school and abused at home.  Jeff's Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) program teaches students powerful social and emotional coping skills that empower them to face adversity, grow in their resilience, and solve their own social problems.  Students will learn how to grow in resilience, be seen as a leader among their peers, and turn their enemies into friends.
