1. Bully Proof P.E.® Immersion Program

Possibly the most unique Anti-bully program available in schools!

Sam uses his own life experiences of being bullied.  He talks about how he had options in how he handled his bullies and eventually conquered them, when he accepted himself and owned his differences. His program is authentic and copyrighted by his mom, the author of the program. Jana Kaye Kuhnert, a former high school teacher of 10 years worked with at risk kids as a sponsor of the Life Saver program and a facilitator in the Student Assistance Program. Her experiences in school, her experiences as director of NubAbility Athletics Foundation and as Sam’s mother, led her to create a program that Sam quickly took to another level.

Sam participates in P.E. classes in a school setting. After a brief introduction by the Physical Education Instructor, he immerses himself in the action during the P.E. class. Sam then takes the last 10 minutes of each class to give a brief motivational talk and answer questions. Sam then delivers a powerful message at a general assembly of the student body.
