“Every school in the country needs to hear this message. The kids walked out of the presentation an inch taller than when they walked in.”

It’s not what happens to you. It’s what you do with what happens to you. Nametags™ is One Revolution’s educational program, which has been presented to more than 100,000 students and more than 400 schools throughout the US as well as Russia.
No matter who we are, we will face challenges and adversity. Chris Waddell’s achievements transcend what others believe he can achieve given his disability. The Nametags™ programs push people to challenge the assumptions and limitations that result from labels we give ourselves and to others.
Nametags™ does not focus on disability, but rather the universal experience of challenge and the power of resilience. Created by Chris Waddell and resilience educator Donna M. Volpitta, Ed.D, the program centers around the message “It’s not what happens to you. It’s what you do with what happens to you” and ultimately, our collective responsibility to create communities that allow people to thrive.
The Nametags™ education program is a forty-minute (forty-five minutes to an hour with questions) assembly designed for students third grade and above. In this compelling interactive program designed in conjunction with resilience educator Donna Volpitta, Ed.D, students learn that they have the power to make choices about how they are perceived, the nametags that they wear. In the face of adversity, they can choose resilience.
