Elevating Education, Expectations and Self - Esteem

Program History

At the Seagull Alternative School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida we took what were formerly Wellness Mentoring Circles for adults and invited students in to learn with us and beside us. This evolved, week by week, throughout the 2012-13 school year at both Seagull and the adjacent Whiddon Rogers Alternative School.

What had been, A New Way Forward, a forum for adults to prepare themselves as mentors became a space where adults and students grew together.

A new incarnation of learning was born and soon christened

The Rising: Elevating Education, Expectations and Self - Esteem.
