Champions Mentor Program

Description        Junior students who have been identified by teachers as being good role models and are alcohol and drug free are invited to join this prevention-based mentorship program working with 7th, 8th and 9th grade students.  This program is sponsored by Starting Point of Ozaukee and the Ozaukee County ATOD Prevention Consortium.This successful program is a great opportunity for 11th graders to use their positive leadership skills to make a real difference in other student’s lives.  Juniors will attend two training sessions and meet four times over the course of the school year with 8th graders to address topics such as peer pressure, communication skills, living a drug-free lifestyle and transitioning to high school.  Students will also have the option of joining an advisory committee and can take part in various training/social/community service activities throughout the year. As seniors, students will receive one additional training session and present to freshman health classes on the importance of being drug-free.  They will also have the opportunity to teach 7th graders, be a resource for 11th grade Champions and assist at junior Champion trainings.
