A Perfect Fit for Your School or Youth Conference
The race of life is riddled with obstacles, challenges, and difficulties. As a quadriplegic, Tasha knows this firsthand. When Tasha speaks, she keeps students on the edges of their seats as she shares her story of having a life-changing theater accident at the age of 16, and how she learned the importance of resilience to create a life that she loves.
Tasha is deeply in tune with today’s adolescents and the issues that they are facing. PATH – an acronym for Purpose, Attitude, Team, and Hope – represents the tools Tasha has learned that have helped her in her journey and that can help students get through difficult times in their own journeys.
In short, Tasha will empower students to build resilience for mental and emotional health.

Tasha Schuh: Beyond a Message
When Tasha comes to your school, she does more than speak. Your students will have a personalized, memorable experience full of striking stories and unforgettable connections.
Here are just a few of the ways that Tasha and her husband, Doug, make the most of their time at your school.
After the presentation is over, Tasha and Doug stick around to speak one-on-one with students who wish to meet them, take pictures, sign info cards, answer questions, and connect with students who want to share their struggles.
The PITCrew Ambassador Program allows for 2-3 students of your choice to be part of the presentation and have one-on-one time with Tasha and Doug, along with the option of giving them a tour of your school before or after the presentation.
Tasha loves doing breakout sessions with smaller groups! If you choose this package, she will work directly with you to design a smaller group session (or multiple sessions) to provide a greater impact for your students through group exercises and stories.
Depending on the timing of the presentation, Tasha and Doug would love to spend the lunch hour with your students.
Tasha provides info cards for every student who attends her presentation. These cards include information about how students can connect with Tasha on social media, including YouTube, Instagram, Snapchat, TikTok, and Facebook. Many students choose to reach out through comments or messages to Tasha on social media. She reads every message she receives and responds as much as possible. If students choose to follow her on these platforms, they will see constant reminders about hope, resilience, and the importance of taking care of one’s mental health. Tasha also creates a weekly vlog to inspire and encourage her followers.
The info cards also provide information about Tasha’s free text-messaging subscription. If students subscribe, Tasha sends weekly, inspirational text messages right to their cell phones.
Each school will have the option to purchase the PATH Curriculum – a complete resource on mental health, suicide awareness, and social-emotional learning. The curriculum is designed to be delivered by a teacher or staff member within a classroom setting. It integrates concise teacher instructions with student handouts, YouTube and short Impact Videos, peer empathy-building activities, projects, and student surveys.
Please note: With the COVID-19 pandemic placing many restrictions on schools, Tasha and Doug have designed hybrid presentation options to meet your school’s specific needs.
Tasha is committed to providing a once-in-a-lifetime experience for your students. She is more than a speaker who drops in once and leaves a minimal impact. Based on the feedback Tasha receives from students, staff, and administrators, the experience she provides is long-lasting and absolutely unforgettable.
