2021 ASCA Webinar Series: Build a Positive School Culture via a Student Leadership Team
The mission of the BIONIC Team (Believe it or Not I Care) is to increase peer-to-peer connections through positive activities throughout the school year. We focus on welcoming new students; reaching out to hospitalized students, students with extended illness/health conditions; students, families and staff who experience the death of a loved one; other schools that experience tragedies; and empowering bystanders to prevent bullying. The BIONIC team plays a key leadership role in schoolwide initiatives such as PBIS, connecting communities and leadership opportunities. Learn about schoolwide initiatives that are sponsored by our BIO.IC team, such as Starts with Hello Week, 10-10 I Care Day, Let it Go Day and many more. Leave with a guide to easily implement your own program at your school.
After viewing this webinar you should be able to:
- Discuss the purpose of the BIONIC team, how to implement one within the school building, and how this team can have a positive impact on your school counseling program.
- Strategize ways to provide opportunities for students in leadership, creating peer-to-peer relationships as well as community connections.
