Molly Sanborn – National Speaker – Former ARC Speaker
“I will forever be indebted to the ARC as the program that not only helped me get established as a speaker but taught me how to relate to and impact young people. Though I am traveling full time now as a national speaker, I will never forget the classroom experiences. My favorite part and what I believe is most valuable, is the intimate setting that allows for students to be open and honest with their questions and comments. I love doing assemblies and conferences, but there is something missing from that setting – the ability to conduct a two-way conversation. ARC speakers have the ability to approach this touchy subject in a way allows students to feel heard and valued. I’ll never forget one of my first times presenting for the ARC, a student tracked me down during lunch thanking me for coming telling me that the timing couldn’t have been better as she was within days of making what she knows now would have been a very regrettable decision.
Through the 5 years that I spoke for the ARC and the literally thousands of emails I replied to, I saw countless lives impacted. I am still in touch with some students who heard me speak 3, 4 and 5 years ago. A 45 minute class period may not seem like a lot of time, but the stories in my inbox tell me otherwise. Laura, now in her 3rd year of college, still keeps in touch with me, sometimes asking for advice but often just checking in to remind me that one class period changed her life.
I enthusiastically recommend the ARC for any school and I strongly encourage those with means to support this program.”
