The community service ambassador’s program provides a unique multi-faceted mentoring opportunity. This program is able to build healthy relationships between both high school and middle school students allowing each to benefit immensely. High schoolers are given the ability to teach leadership skills to middle schoolers, and middle schoolers then pass it on to students with special needs. It is truly an incredible chain reaction.
This program is able to teach valuable skills such as assertiveness, communication, problem solving, and socialization through a variety of interactive games and activities. Offered two semesters each year after school at Saxe Middle School, spots are limited so sign up today! Click Here for more information and registration options.
This selective semester-long program trains current high school students in the community to become successful driven leaders. This program leaves kids with a multitude of leadership skills designed to serve them in future endeavors even beyond their high school environments.

Evening/ Weekend Programs
The Elder Buddies team of high school leaders work together to plan and execute group socialization activities that focus on crossing the generations in a fun and exciting way. These weekly meetings focus on strengthening cognitive skills in the elderly to help keep their minds sharp while also teaching leaders the importance of communication and organization.
High schoolers focus on bridging the gap between the two generations through themed nights such as Game Show Night, Springtime Spectacular, and Mexican night. The sense of family that is developed is further strengthened through activities such as story telling, crafts, and trivia. Elder Buddies is a great way to learn more about the elderly and create community while building on skills that will be essential throughout high school and beyond. Click Here for More information.
