Sources of Strength
To use the power of peer-led social networks to positively change noms and culture in our school. The hope is to empower both peer leaders and caring adults to help impact our school and community.
We believe that many strengths are more powerful than one and our united goal is to activate these strengths to positively reduce suicide, violence, bullying and substance abuse through training and positive activities.
Sources of Strength Peer Leaders are a diverse group of individuals throughout the school who use their personal and collective leadership qualities to help impact positive lifestyles.
