HOPE SQUAD INFORMATION-PRINCETON HIGH SCHOOL
HOPE Squad is a school-based, peer-to-peer, suicide prevention program that emphasizes suicide prevention fundamentals, self-care and anti-bullying. The purpose of a HOPE Squad is to improve access and availability to appropriate prevention services for youth who are at risk for suicide. The HOPE Squad Program functions as a peer support team with the goal of providing kindness, encouragement, and support for students in our school who may be struggling.
HOPE Squad members were nominated by their peers as someone who displays naturally good listening skills and to whom students would go to if they needed help during difficult times. Hope Squad Members will be trained to refer peers to a trusted adult for help. They are not asked to act as a counselor. They will be trained to recognize the warning signs and empowered to report those signs to an adult.
