Leadership Day – Powered by Teen Truth
Tell Your Truth. Be The Difference. Join The Movement.
Schools are invited to attend this discussion featuring award-winning content from TEEN TRUTH, powerful exercises and motivational storytelling. Ideal for middle school or high school aged audiences, the day’s focus is to help students understand that being an effective leader is more than producing dances, theme days or rallies.
The day offers a greater understanding of what it means to be a leader, insight into issues such as bullying, self-esteem and overcoming adversity, tangible solutions that can be implemented on campus and a commitment to service and inclusive leadership models. This event takes place on Thursday, May 9, 2019 and is open to schools only. The TEEN TRUTH assembly will take place in the Palace Theater at 9:30 a.m. Hurry, space is limited!
Featured Speaker - Caleb Campbell
Caleb Campbell is a West Point graduate, former Army Officer and ex-NFL Linebacker. After a college football career at West Point full of accolades and awards, Caleb made history when he was selected by the Detroit Lions in the 2008 NFL Draft. He is the American dream that most students strive to become, but it wasn’t until he was cut for the last time by the Kansas City Chiefs that he was forced to face a hard truth: He had a lived a life of strength on the outside, but internally he was falling apart.
Despite living out his childhood dream and having a life that many would envy, a day never went by where Caleb felt he’d found his place in this world. Having lived through rejection, depression, self medication, and thoughts of suicide, Caleb understands the pressures that your students are facing. He has endured an internal struggle to hide his truth, and has overcome it by finding his voice. Caleb is a leading mental health advocate for teens and student athletes around the world, and one of TEEN TRUTH’s best speakers.
