student success program
The Student Success Program (SSP) is a school-based life skills and mentoring program that provides children with the opportunity to develop the skills needed to succeed in school. These skills include improving their daily school attendance, maintaining positive performance in and out of class, and preventing substance abuse, all of which increase their chances of staying in and graduating from school
SSP has two components:
Botvin LifeSkills® Training program, a nationally recognized curriculum that helps students cultivate the social and emotional skills necessary to handle challenging situations and stay engaged with school
ProJeCt H.E.R.O. (Here Everyday Ready and On-Time) program, which utilizes a federally-endorsed one-on-one mentoring model that helps low-income, at-risk children improve their attendance, behavior and classroom performance.
SSP is a research-based program that effectively improves students’ self-management skills in order to stay positively engaged with school. ProJeCt is currently running the Botvin LifeSkills® Training program in Paxinosa Elementary School and both the Botvin LifeSkills® Training and ProJeCt H.E.R.O. programs at Easton Area Middle School.
