Book A Free School Speech

Powerful presentations that will leave your students knowledgeable on how to stay safe and inspire them to take action in their school and community.

I am sixteen years old, and I want to be a Young Ally. When the OneChild presenter told us their story at my school, I was shocked, appalled, and overwhelmed. Throughout the duration of the speech I was frozen, in denial that those kind of things could and did happen in our world. I am against slavery, and I will fight for the end, and never, ever, give up…Please, give me the opportunity to change the world, give me this chance to spread the message, give me this chance to save a child.- Victoria Valliere, high school student, Guelph, Ontario
