WWGP is committed to recognizing the needs of the youth we serve, and removing as many barriers to participation as possible:
In 2013, middle school Wise Youth was surveyed about their impressions. Over half reported that Wise Youth helps them watch comments, bully less, and be more respectful at school. Many stated that they were better able to handle conflicts with their families. Students also stated that Wise Youth makes them more confident and sure of themselves—“I’m a lot more braver, a leader not a follower” as one student noted. Meeting other people and gaining education on various topics were the top two reasons that students reported coming to Wise Youth group.
