CHS Hope Squad 2019/2020
Your child has been selected to participate as a member of this year’s Hope Squad at Cardston High School. The purpose of this program is to improve access and availability to appropriate prevention services for youth who are at risk for suicide. The HOPE Squad Program functions as a peer support team. The goal is to provide friendship, encouragement, and support for students who may be struggling. You can learn more by visiting
Your child was nominated by his or her peers and selected by school officials as someone who displays naturally good listening skills and to whom students would go to if they needed help during difficult times. Your child will not be asked to act as a counsellor, but rather will be trained to refer student peers to a trusted adult for help. Each Hope Squad member is required to attend an initial Hope Squad training session at the beginning of the program. They are encouraged to attend monthly meetings in which they will be trained with the program suicide prevention curriculum, Phases (Promoting Hope and Student Empowerment). Students are also given opportunities to develop leadership skills.
The Hope Squad Program regularly takes and uses photographs and/or digital images of the students for use in news releases and/or educational materials. These materials might include printed or electronic publications or monthly newsletters. Please indicate permission by checking the box below. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like further information.
