Step Three: Once approved, call Debra Longley to select training dates. We suggest two months for planning training.

Each school determines how students can get involved in S2S. Speak with the sponsors about meeting times, future plans, and how you can get involved in the campus S2S program.
A new student should be given a tour and provided a friend to eat lunch with on their first day of school. An S2S should provide many ways for your new student to connect with new friends and to learn about the campus, culture and community.
Your child was selected to attend training because your school administration sees outstanding leadership, empathy and kindness in them.
Your child will learn the core values and how to establish a program in their school.
Initial training is two days. Booster training for already established schools is one day. Times and location are provided to your school. Your school provides transportation. Please ask your school for information. Breakfast and lunch are served at the training. Please make sure you provide MCEC with any food restrictions when registering. We make every attempt to meet these restrictions. A typical menu is pizza, sub sandwiches, pastries and fruit, or breakfast burritos.
How much does it cost to be included in S2S? MCEC does not charge for being part of S2S. Some schools determine the need for dues. To attend training, there is no cost.
