Joe Beckman: Happy Caveman


Joe Beckman: Happy Caveman!
     Hi! I'm Joe! Our schools are experiencing an unprecedented shift. Student loneliness is at an all-time high, while self worth and belonging are at all-time lows. And the culprit is a lack of human connection.
     Over the last 15+ years I’ve spoken in educational settings all over the world with one simple mission… to reclaim human connection. Whether it’s a middle school in Minneapolis, a professional development workshop in Montana, or an international conference in Malaysia…people are craving connection.
     It’s only when we stop and slow down and truly listen to each other’s stories, that we can course correct, and give our youth the best chance to leave their mark on this world.

Dillon Mendes


Dillon Mendes
     Dillon was your average student when he was in high school. He did well enough to keep his parents happy, but was not focused on the right aspects of life. He was indulged in social media, trying to win the popularity contest and following the status quo. Long story short, Dillon did whatever his peers did… that was until he had a pivoting conversation with his parents at the end of grade 11. They shared their experience of immigrating to Canada in order to give their children a better life. After this conversation, Dillon made a decision that he was going to step outside of his box, be his authentic self and give back to his community.
