As part of the recently expanded Brian Dawkins Values Program, our Founder went back to school on April 29 for a lively day engaging with students and teachers from four high schools in Philadelphia and Jacksonville enrolled in the ‘Owning Your Cerebral Wellness’ course in partnership with EVERFI.
Covering everything from the power of asking for help, to the benefits of exercise on mental health, to how to deal with everyday stressors, Brian and Board Member, Derrick Gunn – who acted as moderator – had very personal discussions with the classes and answered any questions they had. The calls reinforced the message on normalizing conversations on mental health while providing the students and teachers alike with encouragement and practical ways to protect their well-being.
“My students and I really enjoyed the event and interacting with a Hall of Famer the caliber of Brian Dawkins! This mental wellness program is so important to helping students navigate through tough times.”
– Teacher, Parkway-Northwest High School
