COUI's Teens and Toddlers program is great and I recommend it to every teen. I participated in this program back in 2011 and I learned so much. It had a big impact on my life because not only did it open my eyes to how big of a responsibility it is to have a kid, it also allowed me to have a wonderful bonding experience with the preschoolers. I was exciting every time I went to the preschools. If I could do this program all over again I would. Teens and Toddlers is the main reason I was able to graduate high school because it helped me to prioritize what is important to me. I now work with Karen Pfeiffer at Children: Our Ultimate Investment as Assistant Development Director and I love knowing that I am helping other teens, just like COUI helped me!

Laura Huxley had a brilliant insight - Pair teens with tots as co-mentors. That is, tots mentor the teens in what it means to be and have a child and the teen mentor tots by facilitating their social and creative development. There is nothing like this vision. Solid foundation with lifelong benefits for everyone involved.

I have had the pleasure, honor, and privilege to work with "Children: Our Ultimate Investment" for the past 5 years. As a teacher for at-risk teenagers, I found the Teens and Toddlers program to be a perfect fit for our students and school. I strongly believe that this program is a powerful resource for nurturing and bringing out each students' pure potential. I have seen my students grow and flourish into mature, self-respecting, and compassionate adults. My sincere wish is that this invaluable experience be available to many more students in the future.

This charity was the vision of Laura Huxley, the celebrated author and humanitarian. She realized that children play a special role in society due to the fact they they grow into their social group's leaders (and followers). An investment in the physical, intellectual, emotional, social, and spiritual needs of children is an investment in the future of the planet. At a time in world history when Earth faces many crises -- ecological, political, and religious -- children are often the victims of povery, warfare, and ethnic strife. This is especially true of girls, who are undervalued, explotied, and abused in many parts of the world. If children are to become healthy adults, their childhood needs to be free from trauma and filled with joy, love, and intellectual and artistic stimulation. This was Laura Huxley's fervent hope, and mine as well. Stanley Krippner, Ph.D.

The organization needs a higher profile. It could sponsor an annual event, give an award, or do something else that would promote recognition.
