Pilot Program at East Catholic High School

On November 23, 2015, juniors and seniors completed the first pilot 4 What’s Next program at East Catholic High School in Manchester, CT. 31 students comprised the core group that met weekly to discuss important transition topics and to plan their culminating event. On the 23rd, all the juniors and seniors listened to important messaging about mental health and the importance of talking to each other and looking out for one another. They also enjoyed a pizza lunch, an inspiring talk by mental health speaker Jordan Burnham, and small group discussions led by their peers and ECHS alum who shared their experiences transitioning to college. It was a successful first event, and we thank them for piloting this brand new program!
