WHAT IS A SCHOOL VISIT?
Chris Anthony will begin his 14th year of informative school visits this fall. Chris Anthony’s classroom presentations are filled with entertaining and inspiring material from the perspective of an athlete with numerous cultures experiences. Utilizing visual props to aid his presentation, Chris calls upon segments from “Warren Miller” films he has appeared in over the last 24 years to take kids on a global journey with a simple message. If you can dream it, then set a goal for yourself and reach for it. Hundreds of educational establishments have taken advantage of these very popular appearances and his talks have impacted thousands of youth for over a decade. The classroom presentations are one class period in length, and go far beyond the message of pursuit. They expose the audience to different cultures in a variety of geographical locations, and explore both science and history. The information and delivery promotes an interactive question and answer period. Educators who are familiar with the program have worked the talks and their subject matter into their actual teaching curriculum.
SCHOLARSHIP & AID PROGRAM (Donate to a youth’s future)
The Chris Anthony Youth Initiative Project will launch it’s scholarship program in 2013/2014. The goal is to provide financial assistance or scholarship through relationships with creditable organizations to deserving youth who have an interest in educational enrichment opportunities or courses in the field of athletics, music, academics, and arts.
Scholarships will be available to youth, which have participated in one of Chris’s school visits and apply assistance through an SA application. School visits will also provide a venue for promoting the scholarship opportunities. Scholarships will range in the amount of $500.00 to $3,000.00.
Applicants must provide the Youth Initiative Project with the application. Applicants must be applying for acceptance to participate in, have been accepted to participate in, or are currently enrolled in, an education course or program of study at a qualified educational institution. Once a scholarship is awarded, the Youth Initiative Project will require the recipient a written statement at the end of the course or program explaining the educational value of the course or program to the recipient and the recipient’s plans for continued education. In addition, the Youth Initiative will require the educational institution in which the recipient is enrolled to provide a report of the recipient’s successful completion of the course or program. Payment of scholarship awards will be made directly to the educational institution for the benefit of the scholarship recipient on the condition that if the scholarship recipient withdraws from the course or program prior to completion, any unapplied or unused funds shall be returned to the Youth Initiative Project.
We invite you to take advantage of this program.

I am writing on behalf of Chris Anthony and his inspiring and entertaining Youth Initiative presentations.
Chris is highly dedicated to his mission of motivating students to set goals so they can be both successful and happy in their lives. Chris’ Youth Initiative presentations are inspiring, entertaining, and they create a needed awareness of citizen scholarship within our communities.
Chris Anthony’s school visits are engaging for students of all ages, but make a huge impact on upper elementary and middle school kids. Chris understands differences and he teaches kids how to use their unique qualities as a way to rise above the crowd to stand out.
Chris delivers many messages when he visits a school. He teaches geography, ecology, and culture through his work with “Warren Miller” films, video production and travel. As a teacher, I am impressed with the way Chris customizes his presentations to incorporate our curriculum into his content.
Chris also donates his time to taking a group of students skiing every year at Vail. Many of these kids have never skied before. He gets out on the mountain with them and sticks with them all day. While teaching in the Denver area, my class was the recipient of this huge award. Those kids are still talking about their experience today. They could not believe that Chris Anthony would ski with them all day, especially since they had never been on skis before.
Chris Antony’s mission follows school district’s character education curriculum. He has worked hard to earn his success in life. Through his achievements and failures, he teaches students that no matter who they are, by setting goals and working diligently, they can live their dreams. In Chris Anthony’s words, “If you can dream it, then set a goal for yourself and reach for it.”
Chris is an amazing person with a beautiful gift for motivating students and I am excited to see the addition of a scholarship program to the Youth Initiative.
Sixth Grade TeacherHello Chris,
I just wanted to thank you for your presentation at Boulder Country Day yesterday. I am the parent of a 4th and 5th grader, and you were all they could talk about when they got home from school yesterday. My son has proudly displayed your autograph in his room.
Thanks for taking the time and speaking to our kids. You have really inspired them.
