Sources of Strength (SOS)


We are a group of diverse students and adults from many different corners 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.

We help students and staff turn to their strengths and supporters.  Our mission recognizes that our voice has great power and we use it to BREAK the SILENCE when someone is struggling, and to connect them to the help they need and deserve.

We Spread Hope by focusing on stories of strength, rather than on stories of trauma. We know our most powerful impact comes from our personal actions, conversations, and messages that use our music, our art, our writing, our activities, our social media, our culture, and our voice. This gives life to our efforts.

We are Sources of Strength

This week during homeroom all students voted for their Trusted Adult.  A trusted adult is a person you can trust when you are facing an obstacle and/or struggling. These names will be posted in the cafeteria. All teachers voted for will  be recognized. Special recognition will be given to the  top 5 vote receivers.

*Sources of Strength is a universal suicide prevention program designed to build protective influences around youth and to reduce the likelihood that vulnerable youth/young adults will become suicidal.
