Sources of Strength

We Are Sources of Strength

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 time sand 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.

Our mission is the help students and staff turn to their strengths and their supports that are all around. We are Connectors to Help and Strength.

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.

generosity

Generosity can look a lot of different ways, from donating money or time to being intentionally kind to other people. These acts of kindness towards others, big or small, can actually make an impact on how we feel about ourselves. Being generous can often give us a sense of purpose and meaning in our lives.

spirituality

Spirituality is practiced in many ways, but at its core we are looking at what things feed and lift our spirit. Thankfulness is a profound way to practice spirituality together, no matter what our cultural heritage and/or spiritual tradition. Practicing gratitude has profound positive psychological benefits and can be a practice that feeds and lifts our spirits.

medical access

When we are injured, we don’t have to stay in pain. We can get better, with access to the medical care we need and deserve. Physical and social/emotional pain are often integrated and it’s important to take care of our bodies, hearts and minds and to get help when we need it.

mental health

Mental Health is all about getting the support we need and deserve to help us when we are struggling. Our mental health is a very important part of living a healthy life, and oftentimes, getting together with a trusted person, a counselor, or a doctor, can help empower us overcome internal struggles we might be facing.

family support

Whether related to us by blood, or by choice, family support comes from people who support, nurture and care for us.

positive friends

Positive friends lift us up, make us laugh, are honest with us and are there for us when we need them.


mentors

A mentor is an experienced person who shares their insight to help guide us, and help us draw on our own strengths to be the best version of ourselves.

healthy activities

When we feel stressed, healthy activities-- whether they are physical, social, or emotional-- help us unwind, lift our mood, and gain clarity.
