“ENVOLVE has have helped to create THE biggest change in our activities program in my 18 years on the job. Because of the leadership training, specifically the Low Trust/High Trust concept, Carlmont’s ASB has grown and will be adding a new branch called the Service Council. Now, there are opportunities for more students to be involved in our leadership program leading activities related to culture, charity drives, green initiatives, and recognition programs. Now, more students at Carlmont will be engaged and involved.”

“The training we have received from Scott as part of ENVOLVE has been incredibly valuable in establishing a positive climate on our campus. To me, the most impactful part of ENVOLVE is the mindset shift that happened for me and my students. We now see our main role as giving back to our campus. Instead of looking for “fun” activities, we look for activities that express how much we care for our students and staff. In fact, my whole idea of what an “activity” is has changed! This shift has had a hugely positive impact on our campus-more kids are involved, more staff are involved and the feeling on campus is much more positive and inclusive. ENVOLVE is an awesome program for students because it helps them gain a bigger perspective of their role on campus and the training extends far outside the walls of your classroom.”

When you partner with Envolve, you get a partner with data-driven techniques to revitalize school culture. The methodology is simple, and the resources are pure GOLD! They have single-handedly created and excitement in the student body at our school. In one year, the participation at our homecoming increased from 25-30 percent to 60 percent. Additionally, the data that they are able to provide is magnificent. So instead of assembly and activities being a “waste of time.” You can now show improvement. You can now go back to your student leaders, with data, and be intentional with your planning of positive school culture, instead of what sounds fun at the moment. The resources are easy for you as a teacher to use, and for the students to take ownership of and be proud of.

“Bringing the ENVOLVE program to my high school leadership program and community has been a game changer! There was an immediate shift in how my student leaders viewed leadership, implemented and executed the planning process, and worked with the student body. Students now plan events such as spirit days, community events, and simple daily activities with the thought of “how do we best reach our student body where they are, and include them in a positive change so they want to be here.” As a result of this program, there has been an increase of student involvement within our school. The program is straightforward and easy to implement. The positive reaction from the student body has inspired the student leaders to do more every day for their community. For the first time, I feel they easily sense true gratitude from the school community for the little things being done. Scott’s voice of empowerment and belief in student leaders has engaged students to want to be better leaders. ENVOLVE has opened the eyes of my student leaders to a deeper sense of inclusion and allowed them to gain the skills of how to truly celebrate others. I believe my student leaders and our community are better because of this program.”

“The ENVOLVE Schools program run by Scott Backovich has been an amazing addition to shape the goals and impact of the leadership class at Quimby Oak Middle School.  Many of the students that participate in leadership are so driven to put on events for the greater campus. However, those students often forget to find ways to recognize both students and adults that help contribute to the overall school culture.  ENVOLVE does an amazing job of centering the focus of leadership and ASB on making school a place that every student wants to be at.  Our leadership program’s reach has grown exponentially under ENVOLVE’s guidance and we are excited to see how our ASB program can grow even further as the ENVOLVE School’s structures takes root at Quimby.”

“Having been a part of activities and student leadership for over twenty years, I recognize and appreciate the value the ENVOLVE program brings to our campus.  ENVOLVE provides a structure that student leaders understand, buy in to, rally around, and take pride in ownership.  In our first year with the program, Roseville High School has many testimonials of success.  ENVOLVE makes a positive difference for ALL of our students and is set up in a way that is easy for students to be empowered to participate.”

“Our students have always come away from any of the ENVOLVE trainings we done completely on fire and excited! What my students have gained through ENVOLVE is a breakdown of what our students need here at school—what they need to feel included.”

“Backed by research and data, the ENVOLVE model is a sustainable program that teaches advisors and students how to engage their student body throughout the year and meet them where there’re at. ENVOLVE’s relationship and commitment contributes to a program that follows up, follows through and provides the necessary feedback for immediate results.”

“What I love most about Envolve is that the program is pragmatic, full of common sense, and gives our students a structure to make positive change. It takes student activities and skews it by 15%, which allows the culture within a high school to progress and continue to find ways to include all kids into feeling empowered, loved and that their voice matters.”

“Since my council has done the ENVOLVE training, the process of thinking about the risk factors in our activities has become natural. They are constantly thinking about how to involve underrepresented groups and think less of themselves. This training has improved our school culture and we are learning to appreciate more groups within our school. We will be continuing with ENVOLVE for years to come!“
