Each College and Career Advocacy class at Washington High School elects a student representative to help students in their class improve our community, participate in ongoing leadership development, and develop plans to share the benefits of their accomplishments. In the process, every student at Washington has the opportunity to build Essential Skills to help them succeed in college and in the 21st-century workforce.
High Impact Practice for College Success:
Leadership Through Service
This program aligns with the three high-impact practices of College for Every Student (CFES)– Mentoring, Leadership Through Service, and Pathways. Research has shown that these practices raise aspirations and develop the Essential Skills including, adaptability, grit, resilience, teamwork, leadership and other key qualities that promote social and educational uplift.
Our Advocacy Representative groups were implemented in partnership with College for Every Student.
