Preview Jeff’s Message
“We had a full day with Jeff. Every step along the way was a success. Students really pulled key things from his message. Jeff’s willingness to meet with students and be flexible was incredible. He did a wonderful job!”
— Marty Fischer, Assistant Principal, Mound Westonka High School
Through clean comedy, inspiring real-life stories, and evidence-based techniques, Jeff shares social and emotional coping skills that helped him overcome bullying. He shares how treating his enemies like friends transformed his life after years of being picked on at school and abused at home.
Jeff Veley is described as a one-man variety show that teaches students how to cope and find hope no matter their circumstances. His energetic presentation also features music and illusion, two things that Jeff used himself to emotionally cope in the midst of difficult circumstances. Students will love how he highlights examples of resilience in pop-culture, showing that you can truly find inner-strength and overcome any situation.
The program uses Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) and resilience education to equip students with the skills that empower them to face adversity, grow in 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.
This assembly program is designed to reach high school students. Jeff’s message is tailored to reach students in an entertaining way that is age appropriate.
