You’ve come to the right place.  Bucketfillers For Life is the original bucket filling-based character education program for schools, and life quality program for businesses and organizations. All are based upon the bucket filling metaphor and the philosophy of emotional intelligence.

For schools: You will realize positive, immediate, and lasting results through our assemblies and workshops for students, educators, and parents.  Each of our programs is uniquely designed and presented to leave indelible impressions on children and adults.  Whether your school’s focus is on our powerful approach to anti-bullying, which we call pro-empathy and pro-kindness, further developing a culture of respect, or improving classroom management, we will powerfully do for you as we have already done for hundreds of schools.  Check our list of “bucket filling schools” and the testimonials.

For businesses and other organizations: Our 2-hour workshop, “Sleepwalking Though Life”, has truly changed the lives of thousands of attendees. We service our cars, but when do we take the time to service our lives? Now!

Many years of experience and expansion across the nation enable Bucketfillers For Life to come to you no matter where you are.  See our current list of Regional Centers or contact us for more information.

“Kelly Nickel had a profound impact at Rother School. Students took away the important message that they effect the lives of others in positive or negative ways. It is common to overhear children advising each other on how to be bucketfillers throughout the campus. Thank you again Kelly, you were amazing!”

“You have a bucketfiller convert! I must admit that I was skeptical about the impact your programs would have. But this has been absolutely terrific.”
