Sources of Strength

Powell is implementing a new school-wide program called Sources of Strength.  Sources of Strength is an evidence-based prevention program for suicide, violence, bullying, and substance abuse. The program operates through training, supporting, and empowering both peer leaders and caring adults to impact their world through the power of connection, hope, help, and strength. Peer leaders and staff advisors will be trained on the mission of Sources of Strength on October 25, 2018. Students will learn about strengths that help youth and young adults through tough times, how they can help others as a peer leader, and how they and other peer leaders can effectively get messages to other students that encourage them to connect and seek help when going through emotionally hard times. We will be planning several campaigns during the training and throughout the year to build Powell's program.
