A Hero Within® – Student Assembly
A Hero Within® – Student Assembly is an ideal way of playing a supporting role in the overall implementation of this rigorous, engaging, and impactful program. Complementing the lessons contained in the core curriculum, students are challenged by Paul during the assembly to be committed to completing their education; recognize their largest obstacles; acknowledge their greatest fears; become more aware of the risks associated with social networking; identify ways to become more effective leaders; practice verbal and nonverbal communication skills; understand the meaning of “service to others”; and grasp the importance of their “names” and “legacies.”
At the conclusion of the student assembly, a breakout session will be conducted with the purpose of implementing the A Hero Within® Club. During this time, students will be encouraged to release their inner heroism and embrace the concepts in this program of study, making them a way of life. Paul will reinforce ideas such as: teamwork and leadership are integral parts of every individual’s life and legacy; working toward common goals affects change and encourages tolerance; and collaboration with others is crucial to achievement. An extensive Q&A session will follow the establishment of the school’s A Hero Within® Club. The following items will be shared during the implementation process:
- Distribution of Official Club Creation document
- Review of web portal of supporting Club items
- Summary of A Hero Within® Student Playbook
- Introduction of community activities for members to foster awareness

A Hero Within® – Parent Assembly & Focus Group
Countless studies indicate that to help children reach their full potential, parental involvement is a must. Improved academic achievement, a greater respect for the overall importance of education, eagerness to maximize post-graduation opportunities, and an attitude of service are only a few of the benefits realized when active parents/guardians model the way. A Hero Within® – Parent Assembly & Focus Group reinforces the facets that comprise this overall program. Parents are prompted by program founder Paul Vitale to: realize the impact of parental involvement; advocate for their children inside and outside of the classroom; partner with schools, communities, and like-minded parents with an attitude of positive collaboration; continue being aware of the challenges associated with social media; and share and foster support to increase the likelihood of positive outcomes for their children. Promoting the cooperation and support of parents provides increased opportunities for strengthening the future and ensuring the success of students today.
