The Power of Passion

 

Keynote Address: 45 min - 90 min

 

The Power of Passion

 

     In De'Marco's opinion, TEENAGERS are the most influential and powerful entity in the world. The source of that power comes in the shape of their PASSION. When they get passionate about things that matter to them, they become an immovable force! This entire message is filled with practical applications of how their passion is the key to changing the world. Mixed with plenty of humor, music, and dancing, De'Marco combines his passions of music, sports, and working with teens as a way to show students how to inspire and motivate their peers, schools, families, and even communities.  Students will leave inspired, and challenged to make a difference by using their passion as their power!! #PASS-I-ON!

Ignite Passion/Conquer Fear

 

Workshop: 30 min - 75 min

Ignite Passion/Conquer Fear

     This workshop is an extension of "The Power of Passion" keynote where students will have the opportunity to identify their passions, learn how they can be used to inspire others, and most importantly how to apply them in real life situations. In the workshop, De'Marco opens up and goes over his passions and fears with a simple exercise that will leave an everlasting impression on all participants. It forces the students to get their issues out while using each other as resources, encouragement, and support. Students have the opportunity to really connect with each other and realize that our passions might not rank in the same order, but collectively we are able to empathize and get behind what our peers are passionate about. Once that happens, we realize our fears don't scare us... Not living out our passion does. If you "Ignite Your Passion" it will consume and "Conquer Your Fear!"

The iNfluence Formula

   De’Marco’s definition of LEADERSHIP is simply: “The ability to influence.” This message is a hands-on and practical demonstration of just how EASY it can be to influence those around you. By applying the principles of a simple algebraic equation, participants learn how to combine their own unique passions and skills to create a strategy that will help them positively impact their surroundings. De’Marco encourages youth to step up and step out to prove not only to everyone else, but most importantly to themselves that

i-N-fluence!!

Youth Traffic Safety

 

Keynote Address/Workshop: 30 min - 75 min

 

Youth Traffic Safety

 

     De'Marco addresses the #1 killer of teens in America, (car crashes) in ways that are not only entertaining but educational as well. Dealing with the issues of Seatbelt Safety, Distracted Driving, and Drinking and Driving, De'Marco forces students to think about how small decisions like, saying "yes", saying "no", or not saying anything at all can have a huge impact on their friends and families. By simply being bold enough to apply POSITIVE PEER PRESSURE, students can learn how easy it is to change the dynamic of the cars they drive or ride in. By just making small changes to the way they think about traffic safety, students can drastically change the outcome of an epidemic, which for the most part, can be prevented.

Where "You" Fit In

 

Keynote Address/Workshop: 30 min - 75 min

 

Where "You" Fit In

 

      For parents, teachers, professionals who work with teens, and adults who just need a better understanding of where and how they fit in to their teen's lives. De'Marco explains the different "groups" of teenager's perspectives on their family, friends, and even the media, in a new and exciting way. The pronouns " You ", " I ", "We", " Them ", and " They " are all used as sub-groups of each teenager's cycle. While examining these subgroups, adults are able to understand exactly where they fall in their teens lives, and how to navigate between the different groups to identify who and why their teens view certain people the way they do. Adults leave with perspective and practical applications of risk and protective factors their teens are introduced and exposed to. By the end of the presentation adults will leave knowing exactly Where " YOU " Fit In.

The 3 E's to Education

The 3 E's to Education

 

      De’Marco believes education is not limited to what is required to pass a standardized test or exam, but it’s maximizing our opportunity as influencers to prepare our students for every aspect of life. This presentation gives teachers, counselors, coaches, prevention professionals, and others who work with today’s youth new ways to connect, interact, and yes, even learn from their students. Get the most out of your classroom with this easy 3 step formula De’Marco has put together to help you command the attention of your young people. Allow yourself to step out of your comfort zone and be an example to the very lives you wish would step outside of theirs. With a little creativity, dedication, and strategic use of technology we can start to change the atmosphere of your classroom, office, locker room, or program with DeMarco’s number one philosophy he shares with students everywhere. 

Your Passion is YOUR POWER! ... It works for us adults as well!!!
