What people are saying about using the 11 Tips for Doing WIT


"Understanding "It's A Choice" has been amazing. I am learning how to make every choice from a place of awareness. Shifting the blame from the world and others can be difficult, but taking responsibility and owning choices is making progress and part of maturing."
- Shivali Joshi (currently attending Claremont McKenna college - participated in the WIT high school program



"The tip I use or think of the most is "Can't Want It More than You". I did WIT in high school. It was the ultimate college and real life prep. WIT teaches one to accountable to oneself!"
- Alex Barone (currently attending Notre Dame - participated in the WIT high school program)



"WIT was a wonderful experience for my daughters - it taught them life skills, and Tips, that a school will not incorporate in an academic schedule.These skills go far in the years to come when you are making connections for jobs or in a professional life. WIT serves a greater need in today’s more competitive times and encourages “giving back” which should be a part of every teenager's education."
- Catherine Clark (teen daughters worked 1:1 with Sarah) 

Thanks for creating WIT & all its scaffolding to help E to create her business.
From the creation of her product to all the steps she took to bring it to the world, she truly was so inspired to take charge of it all.
I am looking forward to seeing where she wants to go next! Exciting stuff!
Very grateful,

- Heidi F. (teen daughter worked 1:1 with Sarah) 

What a year you have given us. We can’t thank you enough. You have taught our child life lessons that they will take with them forever. I don’t say that lightly. Thank you for being so impactful, Sarah.
