The children are encouraged to share their dreams, hopes, and fears. [Project WITT] helps prepare students for life’s triumphs and successes as well as failures and mistakes. It encourages hard work, emphasizes self-esteem and demands respect for oneself and for others. Through this program, children are offered the tools to survive, to be productive and form close relationships. They are taught methods of making sense and order out of a world that is not always perfect.
[Project WITT] is a must for every school in the City of Buffalo and beyond.

It is without hesitation that I recommend [Project WITT]. It’s a proven program that makes a difference, thinks outside the box and redirects students’ lives.

We have seen an increase in attendance and a decrease in discipline referrals for our grade 8 male population since implementing this program. I would strongly recommend this program at urban schools.

During several observations, I noticed a heightened amount of positive conversation surrounding goal setting and attainment. In addition, students frequently ask me how they can become a part of Reverend Coplin’s group. I am an enthusiastic supporter of continuing and expanding Reverend Coplin’s leadership group to a wider range of students.
