“We interrupt and redirect young people who are on a perilous course, and set them firmly on the pathway to extraordinary dreams. Beginning with the youth, POPP heals wounded communities
from the inside out.”
Meet Our POPP Advisory Team
"The first Power of Peace Principle states "I become what I see," and oh what a sight this program is. Kit Cummings and his team help light a path to success for the brilliant young minds of this community. This program illustrates the true meaning of guidance in the most powerful and uplifting way. I am so thankful to be a part of this movement.”
"POPP made a HUGE impact on our football team this season. Kit was able to connect and engage my developing leaders in a way that made them think about important issues and ideas that are much bigger than themselves. Milton football will always be grateful for your dedication and devotion to our team and helping our young men to become better teammates!"
“The Power of Peace Project is needed in every high school! Kit does an amazing job relating to today’s youth in a relevant and charismatic way. POPP is not a club or a program, it is a movement. Don’t miss out!”
“I am so excited to be part of this powerful partnership between Power of Peace and North Cobb High School. The peaceful resolution skills our young people are learning from Power of Peace will empower them to be successful in every part of their life. Thank you Kit!”
“Kit has a unique ability to connect with young people and communities that may have been left behind, discounted or forgotten. POPP inspires individuals, groups, and organizations to be the influence and the positive change this world needs. POPP is transforming communities through one young person, one school, and one community at a time. This program is the real deal!”
“Kit Cummings’s Protect the Dream program helps to empower our youth to face challenges head on. POPP is an innovative and inspirational program that turns students into positive role models, and we are proud to support this remarkable program!”
“The Power of Peace Project unleashes the leader within by teaching young men and women that they can be agents of change and impact the world around them in a positive way! Everyone has the power to protect their dreams and keep the hope for a better future. I have witnessed the fruit first hand and I am proud to be a sponsor and supporter of POPP!”
“The Power of Peace Project has been a phenomenal blessing to me and the prison population at Earnest C Brooks Correctional Facility, as evidenced by half of our population of 1200+ prisoners asking, seeking, and desiring to be a part of the POPP movement. We have seen approximately 2000 inmates complete this powerful project, and violence decreased considerably. Kit keeps real, because Hope is the new Dope.”
“The POPP program is one of the most inspirational programs that the City of Acworth Police Department and City have been involved in. The program has allowed kids from North Cobb to realize they have a place in our community, and by utilizing their talents and getting involved as leaders they make our community a better place for everyone who lives here.”
“I really like the leadership focus that the POPP program has brought to our athletic teams at North Cobb High School. Under the guidance of Mr. Cummings, our Warriors have been educated on the characteristics that positive leaders can display each day in our school and community.”
"The Power of Peace Project is an amazing program. I have witnessed the affect it has had on our youth of today. Letting them know how important their position in life is, giving them hope that no matter where they are in life, they can become a leader and make a difference in society. In other words, POPP meets them where they are, and that’s very important to young people. I am very glad and excited to play a small part in this fantastic program!"
“I have seen firsthand how POPP can help build up young people and adults alike. The powerful tools learned in POPP have the potential to bring about long-term positive change for individuals and communities.“
“POPP is making a difference in young people’s lives in a huge way! Kit Cummings has a passion for this generation and is making a mark by helping students become WHO they really desire to be, and giving them the HOW! Teams, campuses, and futures are being changed because of the passion of POPP. I am honored to be a part of this movement!”
"I first came to know Kit through his involvement in Douglas County Schools where I served as Superintendent. I was impressed with his dynamic motivational speaking and his ability to reach and inspire young people. Since my retirement in 2017, I have had the privilege of introducing POPP to numerous high school principals and superintendents in the metro Atlanta area, which has opened the door for hundreds more students to be reached and changed!"
“POPP is instrumental in making a difference in today’s youth. Our youth are challenged with constant pressure towards gangs, drugs, hate, and violence. POPP gives hope in countering those pressures while helping our youth navigate a positive path.”

POPP Fighting for At-Risk Youth in Tijuana, Mexico
In 2016 the Power of Peace Project launched a Peace Initiative in one of the most dangerous areas of Tijuana, Mexico. We have partnered with Letics Sports, Inc. in San Diego, CA to support the work with the beautiful kids in that violent region using sports to help them get off the streets, and stay in school, and away from the Cartels. The Boys of Tijuana inspired our “Protect the Dream” campaign working with stand-out athletes in high schools and on college campuses in the States. We are raising up the most influential students to change “what cool looks like” among their peers and to become much-needed young positive role models– and to use their influence for peace, compassion, and acceptance.
