Create a Positive Culture in Your School

“Students who feel emotionally and socially safe, are much more likely to engage in their own learning process.” — Mike Donahue

On a mission to amplify value in every student and help create a positive culture in our schools, Mike Donahue has spoken live to over 1 million students in 2,500 schools on 4 continents.

For over 25 years, Mike and the Value Up team have partnered with teachers, administrators, and parents to help create and maintain healthy, emotionally safe school environments. Combining humor and heart, Mike speaks to the students in a way that resonates with what matters to THEM and brings them into a collective agreement about respect, diversity and the value of others in their school community.

We know that every school is unique, so we take the time to find out what your needs are and then formulate a presentation that addresses your needs, specific to your school.
