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.

"Your Teacher Orientation was excellent.  I met with several of the teachers and as I usually do when we have such a meeting, I asked them to rate it 1 -10.  They all said "20"!"

"My 6th grader came home today and wrote the most beautiful examples of why he loves and respects his little brother. I’m not sure what kind of event you had at school today, January 28, 2009, but this truly is the most amazing experience we had at home in a long time. I just wanted to take a moment to say that it was great. My boys fight like siblings do, some days more than others. Today (my son) wrote about (his brother). (His brother) listened with tears in his eyes, sensitive to the fact that his big brother really does love him. I have to say that this is one of the most memorable events experienced at Crissman. Totally awesome! Thanks."

“Our bucketfilling day with Kelly Nickel was an overwhelming success. Kelly’s visit enabled our school to re-embrace the reasons why building positive relationships is so important. The highlight of the day for me was the parent workshop held after school. Kelly did a terrific job of equipping approximately 40 Pinewood parents with the language and tools necessary to bring the bucketfilling message into the homes of our families. Thank you Kelly!”
