Sources of Strength

Sources of Strength is a strength-based wellness program that focuses on promoting connectivity, school bonding, peer-adult partnerships, and help seeking behaviors in students. The program is based on a relational model that uses teams of peer-leaders mentored by adult advisors to change peer social norms about help seeking and encourages students to individually assess and develop strengths in their life.


Trained peer leaders use their network of friends to:

  • Have one-on-one conversations.

  • Develop a Hope, Help, Strength poster and/or psa program using local faces and voices.

  • Present peer to peer presentations.

  • Develop video, internet, or text messages to get the word out
