WOHS “B.O.S.S.” Mentoring Program is perfect for at risk populations that may have trouble making positive choices. The mentoring program is exclusively for boys. The vision of the group is to introduce the students to various topics that will help them make good choices as they navigate through their teenage years. Topics include positive friendships, conflict resolution, career exploration, and positive self-image, among others. Considering the topics mentioned, we expect the participants to practice confidentiality; peers may share sensitive information that must be kept within the safe space of the sessions. Breach of confidentiality may be grounds for dismissal from the sessions for the rest of the school year.
