The belief that students can be taught how to mentor and help younger students will be put into practice for the start of the 2018-19 school year at Amherst Middle School. Acting as positive role models, 48 eighth-grade students were trained over the course of two days for their yearlong role as mentors through the WEB (Where Everybody Belongs) program. The WEB program is a transition program that welcomes sixth-graders and makes them feel comfortable throughout the first year of their middle school experience. Built on the belief that students can help students succeed, the program trained eighth-grade mentors, who then have a variety of roles during the school year primarily as positive role models, mentors and student leaders. They play a key role in facilitating the sixth-grade orientation for 230 students and will continue to guide the sixth graders to discover what it takes to be successful in middle school.
