AN ASSEMBLY PROMOTING
SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL LEARNING
During the past few years we have totaled over 270 assemblies in 8 different states communicating to every one of the 75,000+ students:
they have Value, and
they have Purpose.
All are MVP's.
Jess Angelique along with her co-performer, Mike Dawson bring a tailor-made, high energy, impactful assembly collaboratively designed with your school addressing the specific challenges your students face on a variety of pressing topics such as:
Anti-bullying in school and anti-cyberbullying
Positive self-worth through believing in oneself
Dealing with disappointments
Making positive decisions/choices
Treating everyone with kindness and respect
regardless of background/physical characteristics
Beyond the assembly we provide a day of service in your school (speaking to and performing an unplugged concert in classrooms/clubs and eating lunch with your students) to help them cope and overcome social and emotional challenges.

“I attended every one of the assemblies and was impressed at the ability of the three performers to adjust and adapt to the various grade levels. The K-3 grade students really loved the music and were an excited audience. Grades 4-6 took a little bit of time to warm up, but they got into it! One of my biggest concerns was about the Middle school kids, especially since they seem to be the ones who always sit back and say: "go ahead, just try to impress me." Well, I was pleasantly surprised to watch as these students became enthralled in the personal stories and with the songs/lyrics of our three young performers. In fact, teachers mentioned afterwards that the students seemed more attentive and engaged than in any assembly they could remember.
Greg and the middle school Principal, Clay Emery, created a survey for the 7th and 8th graders and there was tremendous response. In fact, 370 students out of the 460 enrolled, replied to the survey. That is incredible! Our alternative school has about 75 students and they had their own assembly and seemed to be quite impressed and touched by what was said and shared through song. My other huge concern was wondering how our students at Safford High School would respond. We had 800 students in the Center for the Arts and to get high school students to wave their arms in the air or clap to the beat isn't easy... Jess seems to be electrified as they came out on stage and saw the audience... The message to our students that they Matter, that they have Value, and that they have a Purpose could not have come at a more needed time.
We also appreciate them going to the schools during the school day, eating lunch with students, visiting classes, and sharing time. I highly recommend these assemblies to any and all schools.”

Jess Angelique is that quiet student in your class overlooked but overachieving without attention. She will tell your students she was never one of the popular kids in school and was bullied by classmates online and in person. Her transparency and insecurity encourage students to be who they are and treat others with respect. What separates Jess from other assembly speakers is her ability to relate to your students first-hand that deal with bullying and self-worth. She looks for the kid sitting alone. She was that kid sitting alone. You can trust Jess Angelique to deliver an effective message inspiring positive behavior change that will last weeks and months after the assembly.
At the age of seven, Jess Angelique showed a strong desire to sing. Gifted with a strong voice, she soon found she had the gift of writing music composing her first song five years later. From the age of 12, Jess loved to write music to encourage kids going through the same struggles at school.
Talent brought opportunity with music industry professionals leading to Jess releasing an eight-song solo project when she was 14 and a seven-song group project with NextEra at 17. She has spent 4 years touring, serving schools and youth events with song and message. Her music can be found on digital platforms as NextEra and Jess Angelique Music.
