The Program

Scott Dietrich with Students

What is the program all about?

The School Heroes Unite program runs approximately an hour, and is designed to cultivate a new culture of heroism and teamwork at your school. Through the use of magic, music, video, storytelling and audience participation, School Heroes Unite will engage and captivate your students. It has all the spirit of a pep rally but provides your students with real tools and a plan of action. Together we redefine the terms “Bully” and “Hero”, and after choosing the path of the hero your students create an action plan of simple and achievable ways they can be heroes’ to each other. Dynamic magic effects are used throughout the program, not only to entertain your students, but reinforce Scott’s messages of heroism, teamwork and belief in self. Although magic plays an important role in this program, its success is not measured in tricks, rather through the improved self-confidence of your students and their renewed commitment to working as a team. This program celebrates diversity, fosters empathy, and brings out your students’ inner hero.

Who is the program for?

School Heroes Unite is designed to meet the needs of primary school students. As the needs of students differ depending on their age and grade level, the recommended grade breakdown is K – 4 and 5 – 8. This allows Scott to effectively communicate to students on their level.

Taking a Pro-Heroism vs Anti-Bullying Approach

The primary difference between a Pro-Heroism program versus and an Anti-Bullying program is their focus. Rather than being reactive and focusing on what we don’t want (Anti), a Pro-Heroism program, like School Heroes Unite, focuses on solutions and empowerment.

I was once asked why I don't participate in anti-war demonstrations. I said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I'll be there. - Mother Teresa
