RAISEISM
PROJECT Help Our Pupils Engage: Dropout Prevention / Family Replacement
by Mark Salvatore Pitifer View author's profile page

Overview


We live in an ever growing faithless, and apathetic society. According to a World Health Organization report in 2019, a child decides to take their own lives every 50 seconds. Therefore, it is not surprising that our high school dropout rate here in America follows suit. This year alone, 3.7 million students will drop out of high school! This means that every 20 seconds, a student somewhere in the USA decides to give up on their future.

Imagine if their was a program that would adequately address both of these issues, and not cost you much more than the $15.00 dollars that you pay for this book? Purchasing this book also remarkably gives you 24/7 access to the author himself. Skeptical? Why would somebody do this you ask? Because, I want to make a difference. I want to plant some Counseling Forests across this great nation before I die. It's not about the money for me. My life and this program is all about instilling HOPE, and saving souls!

Terri Bavis (Waterloo (New York) School District Superintendent of Schools) endorses Raiseism: Project H.O.P.E: "If you are a superintendent, a principal, a counselor, a teacher, or merely a parent searching for a cost effective dropout prevention program that targets traumatized/high risk/disengaged students, then Raiseism: Project Help Our Pupils Engage is just what you are looking for. Project HOPE is a program that balances the psycho-social and emotional needs of students with interpersonal relationships, physical and mental well-being, and academics. Although there are many organizations and programs all over the world called Project HOPE. There is only one called RAISEISM: Project H.O.P.E. The bottom line is that over the past 5 years we have had 39 of our most at-risk students earn Regents Dipolma's!

Description


As I have stated earlier, I've been a counselor and coach for 37 years. I have seen firsthand how our society is crumbling, and trauma has ravaged our youth. The Sudden Loss of family which is caused by divorce, incarceration, drug addiction, Alcoholism, and death are destroying the fabric of our nation and the world in which we live. By creating a new and lasting family environment, our Project HOPE children become a part of a family in which You Are Loved Always (YALA) and You Are Never Alone (YANA). Please, help me, help our children.

Lisa Andino our Project HOPE mother stated: "My life has been forever changed by working with Mark Salvatore Pitifer and Project HOPE. The stories of these children have touched my life in a unique and special way. Their honesty, bravery, and resilience is astounding and has given me HOPE for our future generation. By cultivating the seeds of self-discipline, self-awareness, and self-love, we can all reap the harvest of love, joy, and success."

Another beautiful aspect of this program, is that this book RAISEISM: Project Help Our Pupils Engage, is actually a self-help book and parental handbook. It will help educators, parents, counselors, administrators, and even the students themselves. RAISEISM: Project Help Our Pupils Engage is a simple program, it's a short read, and it is written in layman's terms so that it can be easily digested and implemented by all people.

As Susan Burgess (Former Waterloo High School and Middle School Principal) states: "Mark Salvatore Pitifer walks the walk and talks the talk. He embodies the persona of "Counselor." Students can relate to Mark because he has walked in their path of despair and uncertainty. It is his real-life experiences that have molded him into the perfect role model for our Project H.O.P.E. students. Project H.O.P.E.
