"Throughout the last half century, we have been learning and growing. Our foundation is strong, our momentum is palpable, and our community is ready." - 2019-2024 WISE Strategic Direction
We are wiser together
We did it! With the overwhelming support of our generous Upper Valley community, we successfully ended the Wiser Community Campaign. And we exceeded our $2,000,000 campaign goal!

We are so honored that our community shares our vision and mission to end gender-based violence. We know that it is achievable with all of us working together.

Navigating the world online
The internet and social media have become a huge part our dating relationships, friendships, and daily lives. Teenagers stay connected with their friends and family, find validating communities of peers, and access useful information online.

Parents often share with us their concerns about internet safety and their kids. There is a lot to think about when it comes to navigating the online world of relationships. We will break down the research, share our perspective, and offer strategies with you over the next few months. Stay tuned for future discussions on sexting, dating apps, pornography, and more.
