Student Leadership Training

  • Student Leadership Training

    All students participating in the programs below are required to attend the Student Leadership Training in August. Student Leaders include:
    • AM Student Club Leaders
    • Frosh Orientation Leaders
    • Peer Connect Mentors
    • Peer Counselors
    • Student Council Executive Board
  • Walk with a Purpose

    Students who attend the White Privilege Conference lead our Walk With A Purpose program, where they share their personal reflections from the conference and organize a keynote speaker. During last year's 4th annual program, keynote Ariel Luckey invited each of us to grapple with who we are, what we stand for and who we stand with. This dynamic presentation, part keynote, part theater performance, explored power, privilege, and identity from individual and collective perspectives.

Peer Connect Mentor Program

The Peer Connect Mentoring Program is designed to help ease the transition to LWHS by pairing incoming freshman with juniors and seniors who act as mentors throughout the year. These supportive relationships will empower and enlighten incoming students and launch their successful journey at the school. Many activities will be offered throughout the school year to enhance the mentor/mentee relationship. Apply here
