Virtue First Foundation and Justin Fatica


Justin Fatica is the main speaker for the Virtue First Foundation.
Virtue First MISSION: “Promoting virtue to rebuild the character of America’s Youth.”


Speaking to high school students for the past 15 years,  Justin Fatica instills virtue, hope, authenticity and reinstates the students’ sense of worth and importance in each of his assemblies.  Students from across the country have been positively impacted from these events. Here are some of the results:


Does building a virtuous family-like culture work?


Schools have documented numerous positive outcomes for students in schools that promote and foster a Virtuous Family-Like Culture. Outcomes such as: more pro-social behavior (e.g. are helpful and cooperative), are more skilled at solving interpersonal conflicts, are more concerned about other, reductions in the use of alcohol and marijuana, feelings of being more connected to the school, more involved in extra-curricular programs, and that students generally feel better about themselves. After hearing Justin speak, they know, without a doubt, that they are AMAZING!
