Finding Purpose through Fostering Children: Rene Howitt and Cope24

Rene Howitt did not set out to be a child advocate, but when life threw two children in need of stability in her lap, Rene discovered her purpose. She immersed herself into the child welfare system, writing a book and joining discussions about the topic. She then founded Cope24, a nonprofit that educates teens through real life videos about the importance and skills of good parenting. Join us as we discover how our purpose does not need to stem from formal education or training, but from mere desire to make things better.

What does the program include?

We’ve taken 10 very common frustrating parenting situations and put them into a program, so that we can begin discussing with our youth the realities of parenting. This program includes:

  1. Teacher/Instructors manual meeting all national curriculum standards
  2. Manual also includes student worksheets and pre/post student surveys
  3. 10 parenting scenario videos. Each parenting video situation is approx. five-minutes in length. There is one video situation for each of the 10 chapters of this program

The teacher/instructor would begin the class by showing one video. Each scenario will escalate to the point of abuse, neglect, or dysfunction. The video is then stopped and the teacher/instructor can turn to class asking….what went wrong? What other choices did the parents have? What will you do?
