Our speakers aim to empower students by providing them with guidance, relatable stories from speakers' own experiences and inspiration to go out and build their dreams. Our speeches are especially geared to help coasting students who go through their education journey doing 'just enough to get by' and sometimes struggle to see the value in school.
Assemblies are one of the ways we try to empower students to become the best versions of themselves.
Assemblies are typically an excellent time for teachers to relay key messages to students. However, after a while, students get used to hearing from their teachers daily, and occasionally assemblies need that extra spark to reignite them.
That's where Aim A Little Higher comes in!
We remind students of the importance of loving themselves, developing a vision beyond education and how their habits can set them up for both academic and personal success.
We are not the stand behind a lectern and deliver kind of company.
Our assemblies are high energy including music, spoken word poetry, humour and an over all engaging delivery style.
Students will be invited to ask and answer questions, take part in call & response, provide their thoughts and feel like they were part of the assembly.
We don't deliver the wishy-washy "Chase your dreams", "Just believe and achieve" message.
Our principles are based on self-awareness, clarity of vision and putting fourth effort!
Our assemblies are delivered with a splash of humour by our speakers allowing them to be both entertaining and relevant to young audiences.
