Sources of Strength “Dear Person” Hoodies

SCTC introduced a comprehensive mental health program into its guidance plan during the 2023-24 school year. As one of the first initiatives, SCTC brought in Sources of Strength, a data-driven and proven suicide prevention program. With this program, adult advisors and peer leaders completed a training to implement the sources of strength curriculum into SCTC.

With the grant money provided by YouthMovesPA, we were able to purchase the “Dear Person” hoodies for all of our peer leaders and adult advisors. These hoodies display strong messages with “You are enough” printed on the front and “Dear person behind me, the world is a better place with you in it, love the person in front of you” printed on the back.

The club wears these hoodies proudly in hopes of displaying and spreading a strong message to our students that each and every one of their lives matter.
