Success Stories

WInton HIlls Academy

“The VIP program was a great success and Dr. Russo and I were completely satisfied with the work and passion of the Positive Influence team.  The children were fully engaged and most importantly, the children used the group as a place they could discuss their frustrations and reasons for their actions.  Often times Stan gave us insight of many issues the children were dealing with, which in turn, helped us better deal with and understand their behavior issues.  I was able to share the weekly updates with the teachers and help them see their students in a new light outside of their classrooms.  All around, teachers, principals and I saw the program as a great support to the school!”

“I have enjoyed partnering with Stan for the past 5 years.  His engagement with youth is refreshing and unique.  Youth feel cared for and connected while in groups.  Their programing is thoughtful and brings a real life context to treatment and growth.  PIT has been a wonderful addition to our services to youth in the juvenile justice system and we look forward to working together with them in finding new ways of reaching youth and families in need.”
