Dignity Revolution's Mission is to Educate and Empower Youth to Stand Up for the Value of Every Person.

Stand up for the worth, value, and dignity of every person, and commit to be a part of the Dignity Revolution.


An K-12 evidence-based curriculum, purposefully aligned with the National Health Standards and social and emotional competencies that includes a plethora of effective hands-on interactive lessons on mental health and wellness for students.


Featuring Bob Lenz, International Speaker and Author (Grades 6-12) and Aj the Animated Illusionist (Grades K-5) Bob Lenz, international speaker and author, explores serious issues like bullying, self-harm, suicide, and substance use, while using his unique gift of humor. Somewhere between laughing at one of his embarrassing moments and getting choked up over a true story, students realize their hearts and minds have been changed.


Led by Deborah Tackmann, National Teacher Hall of Fame Inductee, her professional development training makes the audience think and laugh. Participants will learn skill-based activities that enhance a students’ capacity to effectively use social and emotional skills personalized for your school.
