A group of tenth grade Communications students meet up once a month for Big Brother Big Sister during their lunch periods at FHP. Students are assigned a mentor and communicate with one another about their lives and plans. Ms. Ana said, “Students are given a presentation about a topic and for the remaining 30 minutes, kids pair up with their mentors in break out rooms and discuss with each other, giving students guidance.” This program offers students a safe space and encourages them to maintain a positive mindset.
