LHS does not endorse any of the particular programs listed below but merely provides this information as a convenience for students and families.

Healthy Decision Making Leadership Course:
Designed to leverage high school students' expertise in order to revise the current high school Healthy Decision Making unit. Those students who participate in the course will be the primary decision makers throughout the revision process.

This is a semester-long hybrid course with the expectation that students will be available to meet 1.5 - 2 hours after school 5-6 times throughout the semester. All other work will be completed independently or with small groups. Students will earn .5 elective credits through Jeffco Virtual Academy (JVA).

Safe2Tell Student Ambassador Program:
We are looking for 10-12 high school students from across the state, with diverse backgrounds, that have a passion and want to be more involved with making our schools and communities safer. Our focus this year is to break the code of silence, and with the help of these student ambassador's, we want to encourage more students to reach out with concerns, whether that’s to a trusted adult in their life or through Safe2Tell. This student-led group, with guidance from Safe2Tell staff, will meet about every 6 weeks as a large group, and one hour in smaller groups every other week, throughout the school year to complete two big projects:
1)     A project that the Safe2Tell office has tasked them with
2)     A project that they come up with to support student safety in their school or across Colorado
