What are people saying about Soul Shoppe?

“We need this here…I can’t believe that after only one assembly the number of kids to my office has dropped dramatically. There is a new attitude here and I can’t wait to have Soul Shoppe here once a month!”

  • Jennifer LaRocque, Principal, Edison Elementary School, Daly City, CA


“I was so impressed with the way Heath (Soul Shoppe facilitator) managed the different- aged audiences and engaged them, entertained them, taught them with words and music and the interactive video. He was awesome!”

  • Judy Schmidt, Counselor, Longden Elementary School, Temple City, CA


“We can tell when we haven’t had Soul Shoppe here in awhile. It has such a positive impact that we all can tell the difference in the students right away!”

  • Kit Cosgriff, Principal, Allen Elementary School, San Bruno, CA


“This assembly made our students think. If you had asked any of our students before the assembly their definition of a bully, they would have said a bully is a kid who wanted their lunch money. But to see the girl in the video talk about emotional bullying, it really made a huge impact on our school. To see the different kinds of bullies made us all think.”

  • Bill Maggins, Principal, Greenwood Elementary School, Toledo, OH


“Thank you so much for coming to our school! Your assemblies are instructive and informative, yet they still are fun for the kids. It’s just what we needed.”

  • Parent, Central Elementary School, Belmont, CA


“I have worked with Soul Shoppe for several years now. I have to say I have been involved in many team building retreats, and Soul Shoppe is by far one of the greatest experiences I or my team(s) have ever experienced. I leave their retreats every year being rejuvenated and ready to take on new goals and challenges in my life. The bonds that they have helped me develop with my team(s) are priceless. I recommend any company, organization, or group to definitely experience their services and grow closer to others and yourself!”

She can lead groups of hundreds of estranged youth to a place of connectedness, trust, respect, and inspiration. I know of few people who possess the vitality, creativity, respect, and confidence that Vicki has with young people.”
