“Reinforcing our core values of sisterhood and wellness, “My Sister, My S.E.L.F.” will create SEL student ambassadors and leaders (S.E.L.F. Team) who provide students with peer supports and sense of community that are important for the development of a healthy sense of self and place in society. In turn, S.E.L.F. Team members who champion and support the self-awareness of their peers, will also grow their awareness of the importance of healthy social emotional skills and feel empowered to positively impact those around them.”
