Our Parent-to-Parent Program was created to provide parents with a supportive network of peers. This program offers parents an opportunity to develop leadership skills and offer parents in similar situations with support. Peer supporters are provided a comprehensive six-week training that focuses on educational advocacy, the laws supporting special education and related services, and leadership training.

The Be ONE Project Program

The Be ONE Project's interactive program for middle school students catches kids at the critical juncture when they acquire the power either to be part of the problem or part of the solution. The magic of The Be ONE Project is its cornerstone philosophy that peer pressure can be captured and reversed, so that students challenge each other to include rather than to exclude, and to support rather than discourage each other. During a fun-filled day of interactive games, The Be ONE Project builds bridges, opens lines of communication, and instills a sense of trust and community. The Be ONE Project challenges students to focus on their similarities and celebrate their differences.

The Be ONE Project's three-hour program of games, activities and guided discussions fosters empathy through shared experience. Students see that they share the same struggles, and begin to see each other for who they are inside and for the potential they hold.

The Be ONE Project creates Positive Peer Pressure - students holding each other accountable to be kind and inclusive - by cultivating empathy. Middle schoolers who learn to approach each other with empathy will choose to help each other reach their potential rather than tear each other down. They go on to become high schoolers who practice empathy, and those high schoolers go on to become adults who practice empathy, every day, with everyone they encounter.
