Sources of Strength

Sources of Strength is a group of nominated Peer Leaders and Adult Advisors across grade levels whose goal is to positively influence peer social norms about help seeking and encourage students to individually assess and develop strengths in their life. This group of Peer Leaders mentored by Adult Advisors lead school-wide campaigns (e.g. Thankfulness Challenge, What Helps Me, Trusted Adults, We Belong, etc.) to help students identify and build their sources of strength.
