The Believe Keynote is designed to engage and inspire students to adopt a mindset that will allow them to see past the barriers they face. Founder Sarah Wells is an Olympic hurdler, so she is no stranger to obstacles. Every day she pours her heart into training, knowing there is no guarantee she will see the result she is after. Today’s youth are faced with similar problems in a fast-paced world that require them to walk the path of uncertainty and constantly be adapting.
Many will encounter obstacles along their journey and some will consider giving up in a moment of adversity. During this critical adolescent time, it is important we talk about being resilient, believing in yourself and learning through our mistakes and obstacles. By showing young people that even Olympic athletes make mistakes and fall down, this presentation will exemplify what will happen when you focus on the process, persevere past the obstacles and continue to believe in yourself.
Ideal for Grades 5 - 12
Build a foundation on the importance of being resilient and the power of believing in yourself

The Believe Initiative
The Believe Initiative program challenges student to answer the question, “What if you believed you could?”. Students are inspired through our Keynote and epic Believe Summit to begin to answer that question. From there we help them pick a passion they have, a problem they want to solve, and then they use that passion to solve that problem. These projects are built out in-class using our Believe Initiative Curriculum. The curriculum is designed to be teacher friendly, including everything you need from detailed lesson plans, student work sheets, online resources and even rubrics based on the ministry of education requirements. At the end of the curriculum, students showcase their Believe Passion projects at the unforgettable Inspiration Fair.
