WEAVE’s Teen Education & Prevention program works directly with you at Hiram Johnson High School. Here, our Teen Educator Renae, works with the students of Club STRONG and mentors students to help create a safer environment and healthier campus. Renae’s work with students at Hiram Johnson High School allows her to form much deeper relationships and to empower the youth to be change agents themselves. The program is clearly working:
I want to tell you thank you so much for taking your time to be my mentor this year. I don’t think I have told you this enough but I appreciated it so much. I enjoyed working for you and WEAVE. You guys have a great organization and I hope I can be apart of events again. You are a great person and your going to go far in your career. Thank you for being so understanding. You understood my schedule but still made sure I had my hours. Thank you for checking up on me when we see eachother and ask how I was doing. Thank you for letting me talk to you about my guy problems haha. Thank you for pressuring me into going to prom cause I enjoyed myself. I learned a lot during this project with domestic violence and I thank you for my knowledge I have now. I’m glad I had such an awesome mentor that was chill and hip haha I know I was late to meetings and couldnt show up for some events but hey you never gave up on me and I appreciate that as well. Just remember for your next mentees they wont be as cool as us Well Renae, once again thank you and I appreciate it so much.
