Segment 2

Kevin “Mr. Peace” takes calls from parents seeking to bully proof their children.

Kevin Szawala, a.k.a. Mr. Peace, is a National-Recognized Youth Motivational Speaker from Metro Detroit who specializes in bullying prevention, character education, student mental health, diversity and inclusion and suicide awareness.

A Graduate of the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor (Major in Economics and Minors in Spanish and Global Change) as well as Wayne State University for his MBA (focus in Marketing and Entrepreneurial Management), after spending time in Corporate America, he found his greater passion in working with youth. So, after being employed for several years in the Auto Industry right out of college, he made the giant leap of faith in 2010, leaving a very comfortable living to follow his dream of speaking and prove that one cannot put a price tag on passion. Since that time, through the use of hip-hop, humor and heart he has given hope to over 1,000,000 people in 1,000+ schools in 20 states nationwide, primarily with his K-12 bullying, cyberbullying, diversity, substance abuse and suicide prevention school assembly programs. Known by many as Mr. Peace for the peace, nonviolence and social justice work he has done at U of M over the last decade through the annual P.E.A.C.E. (Promoting Ethnic And Cultural Equality) Day he hosts every September in conjunction with the United Nations International Day of Peace (September 21st), he has now transitioned his non-violence work year round by talking at schools all over America, and taking to the road to speak at elementary, middle and high schools and share his heart.
