Tom Thelen Presentation for Parents

Monday, Nov. 12th, 6:30pm

151 North Monroe Street

Monroe, MI

https://www.facebook.com/events/1153875074776958/

We are delighted to announce that Tom Thelen, a renown youth motivational speaker and author of Victim Proof, is coming to St. Mary middle school on November 12th. He will present to the 6th - 8th grade at 9:00 a.m and the 3rd - 5th grade at 11:00 a.m.
Parents are welcome to attend the student event and a very special parent presentation at 6:30 p.m. in the St. Mary Parish Life Center (PLC). Please check out Tom's website at https://tomthelen.com

Tom Thelen is the Founder of the Victimproof Bullying
Prevention Program. As one of America’s top youth
motivational speakers, he has spoken at over 500
schools, colleges, and youth organizations. His
message helps schools create a positive culture and
shows students how to BE THE CHANGE. Tom has been
featured on FOX, CBS, PBS, The National Association of
Student Councils, The National Honor Society, as well
as Student Conferences for 4-H, FFA, FCCLA, and YMCA.

In 2005, Tom completed his bachelor’s degree and
began working at a non-profit youth organization
where he honed his skills as a youth speaker and began
writing his first book, TEEN LEADERSHIP REVOLUTION.
Since the publishing of his second book, VICTIMPROOF,
he has become a leading voice in preventing bullying
and creating a positive school climate.

Tom’s school assembly program takes students on a
journey through his own life story – a normal “face
in the crowd” kid who never struggled with drugs
or alcohol, but instead lived with a victim mindset.
Thankfully one teacher stepped in and helped him
break free from the bullying cycle. Today, Tom travels
America showing students how to stand up to bullying
and how to “BE THE CHANGE” on their campus. His live
event comes with the 30-PART VICTIMPROOF VIDEO
CURRICULUM and the accompanying TEACHERS GUIDE
which serves as a 12-month follow-up program.
