“Johnson Park Elementary School in Princeton, New Jersey will use its grant money to implement the Wingman Program. Wingman is a unique youth-led social and emotional learning program designed to embed lasting positive qualities in participants, building stronger and more resilient communities. The Wingman Program seeks to enhance school climate through building connections among our youngsters and between children and their communities. We'll select 24 fourth- and fifth-grade student leaders to facilitate team- and community-building activities with pupils in our first and second grades. Other fourth and fifth graders will help with service-learning activities that address equity and sustainability.”
