 The goal of the Student Assistance Program at E.F.M.H.S. is to offer students, parents, staff, and community members ways to improve their overall well-being.  The S.A.P. offers individual meetings, support groups, wellness activities, peer support (students supporting students), community service opportunities, wellness education, and substance abuse counseling screening and referral.
 
The S.A.P. is a place for open conversations, support, community empowerment, judgement-free listening, and an inclusive, positive environment.

Be an Ally!

"You have the opportunity to be an ally and a friend at home, school, and work. A straight ally can merely be someone who is supportive and accepts the LGBT person, or a straight ally can be someone who personally advocates for equal rights and fair treatment.

Allies are some of the most effective and powerful voices of the LGBT movement. Not only do allies help people in the coming-out process, they also help others understand the importance of equality, fairness, acceptance and mutual respect." 

 
-Franklin Grand Isle Teen Institute:
Students can apply to attend a week-long summer camp where they develop peer leadership skills that they can use to make a lasting impact on their schools!
