About

The Get Schooled Tour® is a one hour, high energy program, that combines live music, interactive polling, and compelling video, to motivate students into a local system of care.

The event encourages students to talk to a trusted adult so that their secret struggle, whatever it is, does not have the final say on their future.

It’s specifically tailored for teens in public schools to provide courage to share their secret struggles with caring adults and look for others around them that need support as well. The assembly is designed to be memorable and make a significant difference in the lives of the students that participate in it.
