The guest speaker, dressed in black, paces slowly in front of the Castlemont High School auditorium stage, sizing up the audience. Tough crowd. Young men hunker down under sweatshirt hoods and baseball caps. Young women, overdressed for this sunny spring day, guard against the chilly atmosphere inside. They lean deep into their seats. No one is smiling.

"I'd like to take a moment of silence for all the young people we've lost on the streets," says the guest, a commanding baritone.

Rave Reviews

"Since your visit, children are treating each other with more respect. They are expressing themselves to each other and to their teachers." Principal, CA

“I have taught about bullying but your teaching broke down major differences. I have heard kids apologizing to others , teachers went back and talked to their classes and students were complimented on speaking up. I’ve never seen kids as attentive and focused. Counselor Creekside Middle School - CA
