“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.”

“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.”

“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!”

“I am so thankful for Kit Cummings and the Power of Peace Project and what the movement is doing to help high school students. Four years ago, our family suffered tragic loss with our teen age daughter and our beautiful niece. Since that tragedy, my eyes have been opened to seeing things in the world differently. Kit Cummings has been a great mentor to me and my family and has come along side of us in our journey to help us navigate the unknown.”

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.”

“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!”
