Student 2 Student and Junior Student 2 Student and Elementary Student 2 Student

Most military-connected students move six to nine times during their school years. Feeling like the perpetual “new kid” can be stressful – just finding someone to eat lunch with can make a difference. MCEC offers student-centered and student-led programs at the elementary, middle and high school levels to ease transitions, and create a positive environment.

The MCEC Student 2 Student (S2S) program trains civilian and military-connected high school students to establish and sustain peer-based programs in their schools to support mobile children as they transition to and from the school.

Building on this successful program, the MCEC Junior Student 2 Student (JS2S) program is for middle school students, addressing the needs of a vulnerable age group.

The Student 2 Student Initiative includes the high school Student 2 Student (S2S) and the middle school Junior Student 2 Student (JS2S)programs. Each meets very real transitioning student needs with:

  •     Immediate peer credibility
  •     Positive peer relationships
  •     Valued information about the school and the community

A delegation from the school is trained to return to their home campus to provide leadership to support students who are transitioning to or from their school. The team is composed of advisors and students. The focus is student-centered, and is student-led, with close supervision. The development of student trainers who can return to their home campus to train other peers is critical to the success and credibility of the program.

Three researched-based modules are used for this training:

  • Academics: (Requirements, Processes, Access) e.g., Test Assessments, Progress Reporting, Programs and Opportunities, Enrichment Support
  • Relationships: (Acceptance, Attributes, Friendships) e.g., Faculty/staff, Groups, Organizations, Peers, Local, On/off Campus
  • Finding the way: (Attention, Orientation, Appreciation) e.g., The Community, the Campus, the Culture, Rules/Policies, School Documents, Structures

The researched-based modules incorporate planning, technology, resources, goal setting, support systems, and elements of transitioning in and out of the campus. Through the training, the team develops well-prepared local lesson plans and clear team assignments for implementation at their home campuses.
