My Students

My students are amazing, inspiring and dedicated to social change to make their world a better place. They are also high school students ages 14-20 from low-income areas around New York City in every borough. Our school is a transfer school, which means some of our students have had problems in other school settings and/or problems at home that led to falling behind in school, and have needed to change schools for one reason or another. Some students are lacking emotional support within their family systems, communities, or peer groups. For a majority of our students, these groups are the first time they are accessing counseling support. High school students may deal with multiple issues including but not limited to community violence, mental health issues, racism, classism, language barriers, abuse and neglect, substance abuse, unintended pregnancies, self-injury, eating disorders, etc. Our students have incredible insight and do amazing, awe-inspiring soulful work in the context of our groups.

My Project

We offer supportive counseling groups during lunch and advisory periods, during the school day. and also after school. The supplies we are raising money for are to use during these groups include stress balls and fidget toys, Journals for writing, stress/workbooks, art supplies, and snacks for lunch and after school groups. Students appreciate these items as gifts and tools that help them engage in the project-based discussions and learning that happens in the counseling room. Students who may not feel comfortable seeking out individual counseling may attend one of these groups with a friend because they are more focused on group/peer support known as mutual aid in the counseling world as opposed to a group "led" by an adult.
