Never Give Up, the Sami Kader Story
What started as local school assemblies and a fun way to get kids moving, has evolved into a powerful, popular weekly video program where youth motivational speaker Sami Kader teaches kids about the social emotional tools they can use to overcome any obstacle.
“Never Give Up” reveals the backstory of Sami’s childhood and the origins of his passion for spreading positivity and helping kids discover the powers within themselves. Discover how in 2020, when faced with three of the most difficult challenges in his life all in the same week, Sami had to use the same advice that he had been giving to kids for years.
"This school year was the first time I heard of Sami's Circuit. Our entire elementary school participates. The kids literally jump up and down with joy when they hear we will watching Sami that day."
“Last year our school purchased a subscription to Sami’s Circuit. I was familiar with Sami's program so I was super excited for this resource. I began using his videos and quickly learned his impact on my student's emotional health. While he puts out a new video every week, I found it essential to use his video library to provide a video for my students every day. Not only did I see an improvement in my students' emotional health, Sami also impacted me to be a more positive person. Students began telling me that they would feel better once we "did Sami’s Circuit." As you know, when students feel better, they do better, and this was definitely the case with my class.”
"Thank you for your support this year. Seeing a familiar face outside of school staff, one that they see as a hero and that connects with them was truly a gift for my students during this pandemic. I appreciate all that you do."
What Schools Are Saying About Sami's Circuit
The Role Model Relationship
Kids are often told they can achieve anything if they put their mind to it. But what does that mean to a child? Without a consistent message and support system, many kids may not understand the social-emotional tools they already have or how to use them.
Sami's weekly videos create a role model relationship with K-6 students, with Sami teaching and demonstrating the many ways to overcome the universal obstacles and challenges we all face, by using our "Circuit of Powers."
But it doesn't stop there. Each video contains 10 minutes of movement, reinforcing the overall concepts and physically demonstrating the feeling of accomplishment. The 2-minute mindfulness cool-down leaves students with a positive mindset, ready to take on the next challenge.
