PLUS Peer Leaders Uniting Students

PLUS is Changing Student Leadership

To build strong student engagement and connections we built our safe schools model on the evidence found in the research on youth development and the effectiveness of peer to peer programs. Teams of staff members are trained to manage a youth empowered program that utilizes social leadership qualities to connect all students.  A diverse cross section of student leaders facilitate a series of activities that create communication, connections, care and community amongst a student body.  Utilizing best practice strategies, the  student leaders serve as the liaison between the student body and the adults on a campus.

 

 

 

 

How does it work?

PLUS has revolutionized how schools can effectively use student leadership. Research shows when addressing school climate issues, students with influence can play a critical role in the prevention of negative social behaviors on campus. PLUS helps schools identify a diverse cross section of influential student leaders who work alongside a team of staff members. Together they work to gather appropriate data that leads to the effective implementation of universal interventions that seek to create a positive school climate and an increase in student engagement.
