One success story for a site coordinator has been with a young man, Franklin, who has been targeted for his dress and mannerisms. Through working with Franklin and talking about how to deal with his tormentors on the bus and in the hallways, the site coordinator has helped him discover his true voice.

He is now in the Art Club and is doing well. In fact, he brought a friend to the site coordinator who was also having difficulty with another student. This helped the site coordinator to realize that this is just the tip of the iceberg. Helping one student is not enough. We have to find a way to help all of them.
