Program areas at Center for Supportive Schools

Teen prevention education program (teen pep): the teen prevention education program (teen pep) utilizes peer-to-peer education to increase students' knowledge, attitudes, skills, and behaviors associated with sexual health. High school juniors and seniors, known as peer educators, are enrolled in a daily, for-credit, yearlong leadership course taught by school faculty during regular school hours. Peer educators conduct a series of structured workshops for groups of younger peers, faculty, and family members designed to promote healthy relationships and decision-making while simultaneously reducing risky sexual behavior.

Community Schools: in our work with community Schools, css uses a collaborative, data- informed, and relationship-driven approach, grounded with a focus on student leadership, to partner with Schools to improve student and school outcomes. Css helps community Schools provide student leadership opportunities, strong family partnerships, engaging academic instruction, social services for families and community members, and professional learning opportunities for teachers. Through carefully cultivated partnerships with school leadership, students, families, teachers, and community members, css community Schools develop customized community school plans that focus on student attendance, health and wellness, social-emotional development, academics, youth development, and more. Css serves as a lead community-based organization for over 20 community Schools.

Peer group connection: peer group connection (pgc) taps into the power of older students to create a nurturing environment for younger students while simultaneously advancing the peer leaders' own learning, growth, and development. Older students, known as peer leaders, are enrolled in a daily, for-credit, yearlong leadership course taught by school faculty during regular school hours. Each week, pairs of peer leaders meet with small groups of younger students in outreach sessions designed to strengthen relationships and build social and emotional skills. Research indicates that pgc improves the graduation rates of student participants by nine percentage points, increases daily attendance by as many as six days, and cuts by half the number of male students who would otherwise drop out.
