Bullying & Exploitation: Disconnecting From Negative Behavior and Destructive Social Networking

Aggressive behavior through bullying on school campuses and over the internet has led to alarming statistics of student suicides, low self-esteem, physical injuries, emotional damage and school absences. This negativity and its effects are at an all-time high and must end! This powerful program hones in on the ramifications of unhealthy behavior both on and off-line and its effects on personal lives and careers. We address the need for acceptance and understanding the importance of creating awareness, speaking up, supporting anti-bullying policies and growing an environment with positive adult and student leadership.

Stress & Anxiety: Breaking Through

High expectations, competition and measuring up to unreasonably elevated standards can result in a self-imposed stressor leading to internal struggles and an unhealthy mix of emotions. With many pressures falling on academics, sports, college acceptance, social surroundings, extra-curricular activities and parental expectations, life and the need to perform exceptionally in all areas can be overwhelming. Within this topic, we target the effectiveness of organization, open communication with family and school counselors, doing your best and defining what means the most to you, staying focused and making room for down time.

Student Leadership: Roadmaps To Success

Today’s students are our future leaders of tomorrow. Leadership skills are essential to students properly and effectively guiding their peers, community organizations and navigating their own paths. M3 hones in on what it takes to be a productive student leader by utilizing empowerment, creativity and accountability. In addition, we focus on the foundation of leadership, which starts with initiative, continues with consistency and ends with follow through. An often forgotten aspect of being a strong leader is being a great listener and working collaboratively within a team. These skills are significant in bringing ideas to the forefront, establishing goals and implementing the proper tasks and management to achieve those goals.

Recognizing Harmful “Media” Influences: Texting, Social Networking, TV, Music, Movies, Video Games

All aspects of “media” play a huge role in our lives, offering hours of entertainment, comfort and inclusion. On the same note, we can easily become completely distracted, secluded and obsessed with having “the world” at our fingertips and in front of our eyes. While most TV shows, music, movies and video games hover around messages of sex and/or violence, our face to face communication has fallen to an all-time low, leaving us typing and socializing via our phones. We continually see the dangers of misusing and over-abusing our daily devices, especially in situations of: Using social media as a main platform to express personal feelings and problems, texting incessantly, especially while driving, “sexting,” and spending countless hours being physically inactive. We present a real look at harmful media and offer positive solutions on understanding social surroundings, the continual degradation of women and its effects, NOT becoming immune to negativity and the benefits of being an encouraging example to others.

Drug & Alcohol Free Living: Healthy Lifestyles

We take a fresh approach on speaking to students about this popular subject, spotlighting the importance of not caving into peer pressure. Recognizing the signs and presenting options for a healthy lifestyle is of the utmost importance. Topics include making the right choices; building self-esteem; how addictions begin; identifying our challenges and exploring positive resources.

Body Image: Beyond The Exterior

In this day and age there is more emphasis than ever placed on the perfect, flawless outer image. Within every publication, print and media ad, we are bombarded with an “idea of beauty,” which so many strive to achieve through unhealthy diets, surgical procedures and other extremes. Smoke and mirrors through picture editing and or through “enhanced” models can leave us feeling inferior and challenged to fit in. This program pinpoints the real beauty and unique makeup we all share internally and externally and how confidence and character have no boundaries or limitations.

Making Your Dreams A Reality: You Can and Will Achieve!

Always a hot topic among students! We share anecdotes on the significance of maintaining a strong GPA no matter what profession lies ahead. Making a dream a reality can happen…it’s all up to the individual. We will also emphasize the importance of gaining and maintaining focus, self-confidence, trust and drive, which allow us to break through roadblocks that keep us from succeeding both personally and professionally.

"Educating the students of today is very complicated. There are far more school-wide pressures than ever, with the expanding external social/peer factors our students face. I am glad that for a day we had a partner (M3 Rock n’ Talk) in helping our students make heads or tails of it all."

-Dr. David V. Basile, Ed.D., Principal, South Plantation High School, Broward County Public Schools, FL

"It was an outstanding performance by the musicians and BMX riders. Not only was it fantastic entertainment but, more importantly, there was a great message for our kids about trying their best, being their best and overcoming obstacles. My hat goes off to this team. We were 100% satisfied with the performance and the message. They did a fantastic job."

-Brenda Lewis, Principal, Foothill High School, Kern County School District, CA

"The inspirational messages that the band delivered in between songs had a profound effect on many of our students and staff. I received a lot of positive feedback from both the kids and adults about how uplifting and motivating the experience was for them. The workshop effectively addresses an aspect of education that is sorely needed by many of our young people but so often neglected in this day of standardized testing. I would highly recommend the M3 Rock n’ Talk to all schools that are interested in addressing the total educational needs of their students."

-Gaetano "Tom" Scotti, Principal, Port of Los Angeles High School, CA

"As a school administrator, I am constantly looking for quality assemblies for our student body. This fall we enjoyed one of the best assemblies I have seen in my 17+ years of working in schools. The energy was contagious and the music really resonated with the students, but I was more impressed with the message they delivered to our students in their talks. I had several kids come up to me in the days after the assembly and tell me that they had never enjoyed an assembly as much as the one with M3."
