UWWCM funds WCI Friend 2 Friend Program, an acting troop that goes into middle schools free of charge performing skits related to kids on bullying, eating disorders, and depression.
A school board member attended a skit at another school district after tragedy at her school. She was touched by the message, “As a parent you reach out to your kids because school years can be hard, it is so helpful to have them get the message somewhere else.”
Kids get surveyed after, one quoted: “This show made me rethink the way I treat my ADHD brother..teasing him…I need to change.”
