Sources of StrengthDecember 12, 2022
Relationship is at the center of the Sources of Strength model. We work to partner caring, connected, and positive Adult Advisors with a diverse group of Peer Leaders from across the social network of a school. We truly believe that one without the other lacks prevention power. Meeting together regularly, this team of youth and adults work to build a community of Strength, not only by practicing Strength in their own lives, but sharing that Strength with others through Strength-based/public health style messaging campaigns. Spreading stories of Strength across a school or community, Peer Leaders invite students, staff and their community to interact, engage, and apply Strength to their own lives. Partnered together, we seek to create a contagion of Strength, an epidemic of hope, and a culture of connection, help-seeking, and wellbeing.
We want to give students and staff a shared language for talking about the Strengths they use in their life to overcome and cope with life’s challenges.
Our team will meet twice in a month in Library.
We are Sources of Strength
We are a group of diverse students and Adults from many different corner and cultures of our school and community. We believe that life has ups and downs, that all of us will go through good times and tough times. Our mission is to ensure that during the rough times no one gets so overwhelmed or hopeless that they want to give up.
Our mission is to spread Hope, Help, and Strength into every corner of our community. -------- This gives like to our efforts
“When we talk about our feelings, they become less upsetting, and less scary. The people we trust with that talk can help us know that we are not alone. Love is at the root of all learning, all relationships--- love or lack of it. Everyone longs to be loved and greatest thing we can do is to let people know are loved and are capable of loving.” - Mister Rogers
