High School

High School Matters

Teens need to focus on what matters in their world. Friends matter. Family matters. Grades matter. Decisions matter. Most importantly, teenagers want to feel like they matter.

They want to be invited to the party, noticed in the hallway, and simply included in a conversation. When high school ends, students just want to be remembered. Blake inspires students to leave a positive high school legacy in a way that makes them difficult to forget.

Blake uses live music, storytelling and appropriate humor to shed a bright light on the ups, downs and opportunities in high school life. He opens up about his struggles and strong points of secondary school to inspire students to leave their school (and the people in it) better than how they found it. Students leave Blake’s programs with a heightened appreciation of their school, their peers and themselves.

Blake equips students with fun ways to say thank you and appreciate others in person and online. Students will rethink the significance of their high school life, and the positive impact they can have on peers, teachers, friends and family along the way.

Topics Covered

  • Quality Friendships vs. Quantity Friendships (Online and Offline)
  • Getting judged and making that experience powerful rather than painful
  • The Social Spectrum: The debate between fitting in and standing out
  • Four practical steps to developing a positive reputation that inspires others

Off To Campus

The end of high school often means the beginning of university or college. This transition can create stress about money, anxiety over marks, and overwhelming pressure among high school graduates.

They need to choose the best school, get the best grades and prepare to possibly leave their best friends. Above all this, they want to make the most of their final high school year.

Blake uses live music, storytelling and appropriate humor  to brilliantly transitions students out of high school and into university. He does this in a way that no one else can. He draws on stories from his book, “The Campus Life Guide,” and his near decade of work in university residences to shed light on what students can expect out of their post-secondary life.

Blake provides examples, insights and stories that students cannot find on flashy college websites or in glossy university brochures. He gets real with the students and gives them practical success strategies for the first few weeks of university and beyond. Most importantly, Blake empowers the graduating class to finish high school strong.

  • How to productively communicate with parents while selecting schools
  • Success strategies to achieve necessary prerequisite marks
