"The messages reflect positive values, highlight the words of well-known people and those who
have striven to overcome obstacles. The examples are multicultural and include male and female role models. Quotes
from literature are rich and stimulate discussion."

Project Wisdom, Inc. is an independent, nonpolitical for-profit organization founded
in 1992 by Leslie Luton Matula, a veteran public school and community volunteer, professional writer, and
independent student of human excellence. After years of on-site volunteer work, Leslie identified
a need to more actively foster responsible, caring, and ethical student behavior.
The program was originally piloted
in her community middle school by educators, students, and parents
of diverse racial, religious, economic, cultural, and educational
backgrounds. Within weeks of initiating the pilot, educators and
community members serving as advisors to the project suggested that
the program be made available to other schools in the Houston area.
In early 1993, a small business was organized to meet this need.
Today Project Wisdom has licensed more than 19,000 schools nationwide.
