WEB (Where Everybody Belongs) is a school-based leadership/mentorship program where the leaders are 8th graders who are good role models for younger students and who have been successful at Yorkson Creek Middle School. WEB Leaders’ communication skills, leadership potential, responsibility, and personality have helped them succeed in the middle school environment, and the lessons they have learned should be shared to help others succeed. You could have a tremendous influence on our new students and you will learn many valuable leadership skills in the process. Plus, it will be fun!!
What does a WEB Leader do? WEB Leaders are trained to work with the incoming sixth graders and other new students who are entering our school next fall. After the extensive training, the WEB Leaders will run Grade 6 orientation on the first day of school in September. At the orientation, two WEB Leaders will be given a small group of Grade 6s to work with that day and will be asked to befriend and to help that group during the first week of school with any challenges they may face. Additionally, throughout the school year, WEB Leaders will meet again with their student groups to touch base, discuss problems, and plan social activities. We know that the more contact a sixth grader has with her/his WEB Leader the more successful he/she will be.
