School Assemblies

Every person is the hero to their own story. In every good story the hero finds a guide that helps them level up and achieve their dreams and goals. Michigan Youth Alive wants to be one of those guides to the heroes that are walking your hallways. Students need people to believe in them and challenge them to dream big and give them the resources they need to reach those dreams.

Our School Assemblies give students tools they need to continue on their hero journey and challenge them to add value to other people as they go. We are honored to have partnered with amazing faculty and staff in over 500 schools in Michigan and we hope to partner with you soon.

Superhero Academy

Superhero stories all start with the hero realizing that they are gifted and unique and have the ability to change their life. This fun school assembly is for grades K-8 and combines music, magic, stories and more to help students learn the importance their choices make on their epic quest of life.

Students will go through a 45 minute crash course to graduate from Superhero Academy.

They will face "rigorous training" to withstand the physical, mental, and emotional challenges of being a superhero. Students will learn how to overcome different lessons superheroes learn like secret identities, facing their kryptonite, needing a sidekick, everyone has an origin story, and much more.

This assembly will be interactive and engaging and every student will leave the Academy with their special badge letting other everyone know they graduated from Superhero Academy!

Hope Initiative

A high impact, interactive, fully customizable assembly that will engage students with speakers, media, music, and activities designed to inspire and challenge students to be better.  

Schools can choose 3 topics from our list or ask for one that isn't on the list.  We will cover those topics in the assembly and provide resources for you to keep the lessons in front of students throughout the year.  

Here are some of the topics we cover: 

adventure, character, choices, compassion, dreams, forgiveness, hope, human trafficking, integrity, kindness, labels, mental health, moral clarity, peer pressure, racism, resilience, responsibility, scholarship, self-esteem, substance abuse, suicide, and others

MyLife Tour

The MyLife Tour presents students with a relevant message and a call to rise to the challenge in front of them. The challenge: To take responsibility for their life, their community, and their world and go do something great. Each MyLife Tour concludes with students responding to a call to action by signing their name and the thing in this world they would like to change.  The banner with the signatures is left behind for you to hang in a hallway or room so students can be reminded of the commitment they made to themselves and to the world around them.
