Bound For Greatness Program

Dear Educational Leaders,

 

We are proactively keeping children safe in schools and the community.  Most importantly, we are having unprecedented success with our celebrity Bound For Greatness student leadership program, assembly programs and anti-bullying, character development, mentoring and behavior management programs in schools and on national television.  You can review our Bound For Greatness student leadership programs on our nbctelevision.org website.  Share this with your leadership team and school district directors.

 

Our BFG program is K - 12 and our topics of discussion and curriculum align with K - 12 schools curriculum.  The BFG program is interactive, some students are selected to participate during the presentation.  For comprehension purposes, we tailor the program for K - 2, K - 6, K- 8 and 9 - 12 grade levels.  Our programs are year round.  It will be an honor to have your school and or school district participate in the BFG leadership, anti-bullying tour this year.
