“Are you aware that you brought a special needs student and the biggest bully in school onstage to volunteer with you? For the last week our teachers have been trying to figure out how you knew to pick them. Everyone was amazed to see that even the BIGGEST bully in the school couldn’t bully you when you responded in love. You got through to a student that we’ve all struggled to reach and showed the other students what’s possible. Thank you!”

— Jane Smith, Jr. High Teacher

Letter from Jeff

Hi, my name is Jeff Veley and I’m on a mission to teach students how to make friends and manage enemies, through empowerment.  For over a decade, I’ve been working on the front lines helping young people, with an emphasis on reaching at-risk youth and victims of trauma.

As a kid who was relentlessly bullied at school and suffered other abuse, I know just how hard it can be to navigate social challenges.  That’s why I’ve dedicated my career to equipping students with the social and emotional skills that empower them to face adversity, grow in resilience, and solve their own social problems.  My story allows me to speak about these issues with young people in a way that is both real and relevant.  Combine this with the most practical advice on stopping aggression, and you have a recipe for success.

If you’re a caring adult, looking for a way to equip your kids with skills to navigate social challenges, I invite you to take a look throughout this website.  Here you can sign up for my free training video and test-drive the “Peace Sign Approach” to social aggression.  I know that you’ll find my message to be a breath of fresh air.  I look forward to empowering YOU-th!

Peace,

Jeff Veley
