Words from teens after working with Xylem:

 “I want to thank you so much for this beautiful gift you have given me. I don’t think I have ever received such thorough feedback and thought. I can see the amount of time and effort and thoughtfulness that has gone into this, and I have so much appreciation for everything you have done throughout the course of this last year.” 

“Thank you for the guidance, love and support.  Thank you for being a mentor and inspiration in my life…  I have seen a visible difference in myself over these past 10 months…” 

“NVC and clean communication have made a huge impact on me.  I wasn’t expecting to be so changed by these philosophies.  They’ve impacted my family, friends, and peers.  I see people at school reaching out to me because they feel safe when they are around me… You have inspired me to live with more empathy and compassion, not only towards others but towards myself.” 

“You are a mentor and role model in my life, and I would be a very different person if I hadn’t spent all these months learning from you.  I have seen… a visible impact in my life, and the lives of those around me.  I want to thank you for the endless hours of feedback, work, emails, and love that you gave to this program.  I love and miss you very much!”
