Assembly Programs

Hoot’s Chalk Talk Assembly Programs

The Taylor Hooton Foundation provides highly entertaining multimedia Hoot’s Chalk Talk educational programs at high schools, universities, and other venues across the U.S., Canada and Latin America. Our expert speakers deliver a strong message that really captures and holds the attention of students, parents, educators, coaches, and other adults.

Our programs are researched-based and have been developed in conjunction with the medical community, athletic trainers, university experts, as well as young people. Research reveals that 85% of our nation’s high school students have never had an adult (coach, parent, or teacher) talk with them about the dangers of APEDs. See how our programs have been proven effective.

The Taylor Hooton Foundation now offers two unique programs:
