Motivational Talks & Workshops

Through motivational talks and workshops, Academic Coach, Melanie Black, empowers teens to improve their social emotional learning (SEL) skills, and better prepare for challenges that lie ahead.  Many students, especially top performers, are having trouble coping not just with the pressures of high school but also with the transition to college or university.

In 2017, anxiety, depression, and stress were among the top 5 reasons students sought counseling in universities and colleges. The First Year College Experience survey, found that 60 percent of freshmen said they wished they had “more help getting mentally prepared for college.”

Armed with 12+ years of experience in education, Melanie Black takes a holistic approach helping teens improve their overall relationship with learning. She is a youth speaker who provides educational opportunities, resources, products, and guidance to help students identify their passion, set and accomplish goals, and navigate life’s challenges.

“I truly believe that the best thing we can do for students is empower them, fostering self efficacy and a love of learning that will bring them a lifetime of success.”
