Washington Gardner Middle School Collaborative

Where will the activity take place?

Washington Gardner Middle School


The Washington Gardner Middle School Collaborative seeks to provide healthy opportunities for students to gain new skills, develop significant adult relationships, and to give back to their community.

These opportunities are based on the America's Community of Promise and the SEARCH Institute's 40 Developmental Assets.

Program Description

The Washington Gardner Middle School Collaborative provides a variety of opporunities for students to become involved in after school activities which focus on leadership, mentoring, community service, and asset building.

Both the Tobacco Reduction Coalition and the Positive Peers focus on making a difference in the community through prevention education and community service. STRIVE is a leadership mentoring program where small groups 12-15 of middle school students work with Albion College students to gain leadership skills and then put them into action via community service and involvement in other organizations.

Each of the collaborative groups uses the America's Community of Promise framework as well as the SEARCH Institute's 40 Developmental Assets in providing opportunities for students.
