What others have to say about our programs


You did a fine job incorporating social skills, role play and puppetry to discuss the topic. I am confident that our students are better prepared to respond to and deal with the issue of bullying & teasing in the future. ..................... Principle of Oxhead Elementary School


The hands-on program to our Jr. High youth council was the highlight of our workshop. The information you shared and the enthusiasm you brought to it were invaluable. ..........North Shore Youth Council CSW


The puppets were so colorful and life-like. The children and parents loved the presentation

....................Setauket Wellness Club grades 1 - 3- Social Worker


The Appreciation of Diversity lesson addressed many family issues that are important. The children learned acceptance, being different is okay, and everyone is unique

........................Hiawatha Elementary School - Second Grade Teacher


The workshops that you conducted on bullying and violence prevention for my middle school classes really had an impact on my students. They couldn't stop talking about it for days. i can see a difference in the way they are already acting

................Sequoya Middle School Social Studies Department Chair


The lesson on bullying was extremely effective. The puppet show was fabulous

............................Boyle Road Elementary School Second Grade Teacher


The students really loved the program, especially the puppets. It gives kids choices they can reflect on in certain situations, instead of just a quiet reaction

............Norwood Elementary


Based on surveys completed by our students, the speaker's presentation was received in a positive manner. They learned alot about the topic of resect. We would like to contact you in the future to return to our school. ...........Centereach High School Principal


Thank You for the wonderful job you did facilitating our annual staff development day. your enthusiasm and sensitivity for the goals of the day really "shined." Your well-planned and executed activities helped us fully achieve our mission for the day. as you can see from the survey results, your program received 100% satisfaction from all 36 staff members. Incredible testament of your effectiveness.

................Director of Pederson-Krag -Staff Development Day


The information presented was highly relevant to our programís goals, and was presented in a clear, concise manner.† Over and over again our students tell us at the end of the training weekend that the best part was the speakers, particularly the Sunshine Prevention Centerís presentation on Suicide and Depression.

Ö..John Glenn High School Natural Helpers Weekend


Thank you so much for inviting the Longwood Elementary School Counselors to your center.† We really enjoyed the six styles of anger.† This activity not only allowed us to gain insight about ourselves but others as well.†
