Overview

L.E.A.D. is a Mentoring & Leadership program aimed at improving students' experiences as they grow and progress through their high school years. The program will provide guidance, assistance, and assurance to grade 10 students in their school environment, while helping them in establishing realistic goals, and assisting in the prevention and reduction of related social, emotional, and academic concerns and challenges.

Allowing students strong and continued support from grade 9 through the completion of grade 10, will assure their continued success throughout their secondary school experience.

Rationale

Advancing in high school from grade 9 to 10 represents a significant transition for students. Although there are numerous supports and innovative programs for grade 9 students, there are comparatively less in grade 10. Quantitative and qualitative data indicates that students in grade 10 are struggling academically, and in comparison to their peers in other grades. Unequal access to programs and supports is an unfortunate reality in many schools. This reality can very often lead to further challenges and have a negative impact on the quality of the learning and school environment. This situation necessitates immediate and ongoing attention. This program will ultimately make a positive and sustainable difference in the school environment. We strongly believe that through student-led initiatives we can effectively promote caring and inclusive communities.
