Our Purpose

INSPIRE School Programs is committed to offering quality Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) programs to empower middle and high school students to reach their potential and achieve academic success. INSPIRE mentoring programs encourages self-esteem, healthy relationships, respect, positive choices, mental wellness, resilience, mindfulness and leadership.

Our Approach

INSPIRE classroom mentoring programs work with local schools to help determine their specific student issues and address them in the weekly programs. Two main goals are present on all campus programs - encourage academic achievement and college/vocational school attendance as well as creating an environment to safely talk about and present positive coping skills for dealing with anxiety and emotions. These two issues go hand in hand when helping students become successful and contributing members of society. Without goals, resilience and hard work, students will suffer academically. Without positive coping skills, students are at risk for depression, suicide, substance abuse, unhealthy relationships and other issues that would limit their success. 

INSPIRE Survey Results - 300 High School Female Students

  • Do you feel an increase in self-confidence? Yes 86%

  • Do you respect yourself more? Yes 94%

  • Do you respect others more? Yes 85%

  • Do you make better choices about relationships? Yes 91%

  • Have you in the last week used any of the coping techniques for emotions or stress that were discussed in class? Yes 66%


Studies show that an increase in self-confidence in female students will lead to overall better decision making. Survey results in male students showed an increase in respect for themselves and others. Over half of both male and female students had used a positive coping technique from the class to help deal with stress or emotions. Students are responding positively to discussions about mindfulness and mental health which in turn can lead to seeking help and deterring from negative choices. 

INSPIRE's approach to student mentoring includes academic encouragement, social and emotional intelligence as well as mental health awareness through developing mindfulness. This approach seeks the empowerment of students in all of these areas since they are all closely related to a student's overall success. 


INSPIRE School Programs was founded in 2008 after recognizing the need for quality school programs for youth that focused on the following:


Value – Each young person is created uniquely and possesses individual talents and abilities that makes them significant.

Purpose – Life is more than just existing and every young person has a reason to be here and something valuable to contribute.

Strength – To be successful in life, each young person must build mental strength and wellness in areas such as respect, positive choices, resilience and mindfulness.


INSPIRE School Programs now focuses on two main initiatives – providing classroom mentoring programs and assemblies on dating and sexual violence. This includes both creating curriculum, training other organizations and schools nationwide as well as implementing classroom mentoring programs and assemblies in Dallas, Texas. In the last 6 years, over 10,000 students have completed the INSPIRE classroom mentoring program and over 15,000 have attended an UNBREAK ME assembly.

Meet The Director

Anthony Guadalupe is the Northeast Florida Director of INSPIRE School Programs. Anthony holds his Ministerial Credentials with the Assemblies of God. He is happily married with his wife, Jessica for 18 years and they have a wonderful son.


A native from Brooklyn,  New York, Anthony is no stranger to being raised with the struggles of a single parent, low-self esteem, identity issues and  peer pressures. However, with his faith, perseverance & determination, Anthony chose to not be a part of the status quo and fought to not succumb to the pressures of life but turned his life around to become the agent of change that he is. Things turned around for him later in his teen years.  He developed a passion for empowering youth at the age of 19. Since Anthony didn’t personally have a mentor, or a present dad in his upbringing, he wanted to change that for future generations. Along with his wife, they founded an organization in Brooklyn, N.Y., that was tailored in inspiring and igniting youth to fight for their purpose, through events called "Fight or Die".  His time in New York City, through the organization touched and impacted more than 6000 young people. 

 Anthony believes the next level in being a mentor and helping (High School) students is through classroom mentoring programs. In adopting the program from the National Director of INSPIRE school programs ,Tara Bollinger, she has trained Anthony in the art of winning students for a greater tomorrow. Since the program has begun, he has noticed it has helped students with issues like overcoming bullying and low-self esteem. In addition, students have achieved academic success, managed certain feelings and are making positive choices!
