“This is US Project” @ Sanford High School
May 18 @ 7:10 am

This is Us Project at Sanford High School

In a recent survey, only 49% of Sanford youth (ages 12-18) said they felt like they mattered to people in our community.  Tangentially, 20% of Sanford youth (ages 12-18) expressed suicidal ideation in the last thirty days.

Together, with the Sanford High School Peer Helpers and Strategies for a Stronger Sanford, we can change that.

Join us on Friday, May 18th at Sanford High School to give our kids a warm welcome and to let them know that they do matter.  We will line the walkway to Sanford High School before students arrive; feel free to make posters and / or bring balloons or bubbles– though your presence is what matters most!

Please arrive at Sanford High School by 7:10am.  The event will take no more than 50 minutes of your time and will resonate with students for years to come.

To participate, please email nivey@strongersanford.org by May 15th.
