Parents can utilize our positive programming in the home to reinforce what their child/children are learning in school and/or to reinforce core values, morals, respect, behavior, discipline, tolerance and leadership development.  It can also be used to decrease bullying and to help children who are victims of bullying.  Our show format is designed to educate and reform bullies, stop bullies from bullying!  There's parental involvement support on the show for children and families in crisis.    


We use the power of our celebrity influence to direct students toward academic leadership initiatives and higher achievement in the classroom.  We engage students in the learning process, enhance students leadership skills, improve school climate and navigate students toward productive roles in school and the community.  This is a long term online leadership program.





Our mission is to support, uplift, encourage, enlighten, create health dialog and move students into better positions 

academically, in the home, and society with positive media programming and support from elite professionals whom achieved 

success in various areas in life.  Our broadcasting leadership programs encourage students to excel academically. 




Our primary programming focus is self-help and personal development: Inspirational stories, stories of adversity and some stories of those who have failed in life but are sharing their story to help others avoid similar shortcomings. Children's health, academic performance, leadership skills, literacy, character development, life skills, tolerance, behavior, emotional and psychological development, career readiness, goal setting, and safety are top priorities on our programming agenda.  


Our slogan, positive people, positive stories, positive energy, positive programming.  We offer solutions that encourage children to keep moving forward in life.  We have interviewed some amazing people who have overcome serious challenges to achieve success.  Students learn recipes of success.  Our programs navigate students toward productive roles in school and society.  


Most importantly, students gain tangible knowledge from each programming segment.  It is a great program to incorporate into lessons plans and writing assignments.  We feature 1 - 2 profile stories a month.  Your students can write to us and share their stories.  We give some students an opportunity to participate in our celebrity TV, magazine kids internship program.  Children in our youth internship program are invited on corporate field trips as co-host TV personalities and journalist.  They interview CEO's, Vice Presidents, elite doctors, TV personalities, NFL executives and players, authors, and radio personalities with D.
