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.

What is a Bucketfiller?

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 did a fabulous job sharing the BucketFiller message to our student body. He was engaging, funny and thought-provoking. Our students came away from a full day of events with a better understanding of the need to be caring and empathetic with each other. We would have Kelly back in a heartbeat!”

“You showed me things that I didn’t see before. Three things that I will do to keep this going are write a letter to everyone in my family, try to be nicer and not yell as much. Thank you for helping me understand things I never understood before.”

“Mike provided an engaging and inspirational message to our students and staff! His presentation quickly spread positive attitudes and comments throughout the campus. I strongly recommend him to any site looking to create and maintain a culture of individuals who understand the importance of kindness, acceptance, respect, and empathy”
