Is your school and community looking for an educational program that is both Entertaining and Life Changing – while also providing your students needed SKILLS for addressing:
- Healthy Relationships (and reducing Dating Violence)
- Respecting Boundaries & Consent
- Bystander Intervention (Intervene in dangerous alcohol situations)
- Supporting Survivors of Sexual Assault
When it comes to dating, decision making, sex, drinking, sexual assault, and the safety of teens, how do you find the right school assembly to best protect your middle school and high school students? Do you want an expert and author who is going to have your students rolling in the aisles from laughter and then just minutes later have the audience completely mesmerized in silence as he shares the personal story of his sister’s rape?
More important, are you looking for an expert who will help your students take positive, important actions upon leaving the presentation?
“The ‘Can I Kiss You?‘ program could not have been more well-targeted and eye-opening for our students. You were definitely the talk of the school for the next few days…Your presentation informed my students, and not only challenged them to think differently about dating, communication, alcohol use and sexual assault, but game them specific ways to BEHAVE differently. This clear and pragmatic approach is perfect for students.”
Karen Lackey, Director or Geauga Teen Pregnancy Prevention (OH)
Mike Domitrz (a leading authority on consent, bystander intervention, healthy dating, and sexual assault awareness) understands students want to be uplifted and entertained – especially when discussing a sensitive issue. They want a compelling and powerful program each person can relate to in a meaningful manner. Plus, educators, students and their parents want realistic solutions! For this reason, Mike takes your students on a journey from hilarious laughter to hard-hitting questions and then provides the answers each student can use in his or her own life.
Males and females from all cultures, backgrounds, sexual orientations, and diverse populations appreciate Mike’s sincerity and honesty. While he presents one of the “cleanest” programs in schools today, he holds nothing back. At the same time, Mike quickly removes the fears some schools have about the reactions their parents and staff will have to a general assembly presentation on dating and intimacy.
“To be honest, my administrators were a little concerned with the topic, but once they saw the presentation they all thought Mike did an excellent job of handling a difficult topic, in a very safe, respectful way. Actually, Mike did an amazing job. We have heard nothing but positives from students and staff alike…All students need to hear this message. Things will not change unless we can talk about what is happening and discuss alternative behaviors. Mike’s presentation gave us a way to do this…And the change is for the better.”
Pat Hannam, Family & Consumer Science Teacher, Lakes High School (WA)
Through his role-playing with audience members and his portrayal of intriguing characters on stage, Mike turns what is often labeled as a “silent” issue into an engaging and thought-provoking event. While most people simply “make their move” on a date, Mike shows your students why “Asking First” and getting consent makes all the difference! Attendees are given skills to instantly use in their own relationships.
“The students thought he was a ‘breathe of fresh air.’ His approach to dating was, ‘fresh’, ‘different’, and quite ‘unique.’ I never realized before how easy a transition can be if people would just communicate their feelings and just ask, ‘Can I Kiss You?’”

Plus, students discover how to “Be a Friend” by appropriately intervening in potentially dangerous situations with their peers (especially when alcohol is involved). Through it all, everyone gains a greater level of admiration and respect for survivors of sexual assault. In doing so, each student discovers how to properly provide support for survivors by “Opening the Door” for those he/she cares about.
“Before they came to hear you, only 21% of the high school students disagreed with the statement: If a woman doesn’t say or do anything to stop sexual intimacy, then she is giving ‘implied consent’ for that act to occur. In other words, almost 80% of the kids felt that if a woman doesn’t say, ‘NO,’ its ok to go ahead and do what you want!!!
When we asked this same question AFTER your presentation, however, we saw a dramatic difference. After hearing you speak 60% of these SAME STUDENTS disagreed with the statement (a 300% increase in positive understanding of respecting boundaries). I think these numbers are a strong, strong testament to the power your presentation had on our young people [1100 students were in the audience].”
Cheryl M. Einsweiler, Community Educator, Cedar Valley Friends of the Family (IA)
Schools districts and local organizations constantly praise Mike for the lasting impact he has on their students and on their community’s overall culture. When your students leave the “Can I Kiss You?” program, they will be asking first, being a friend at parties, and opening doors for survivors. All that is left is helping the students, parents, and entire community get excited to experience this special opportunity for everyone and we provide that solution for you!
