schools we serve

Charlotte Latin School

our kids shouldn’t do life alone.
This needs to change:


isolation/not found their people


relationships being superficial


talking to strangers on social


seeking info on reddit


disengaging in phones/xbox

Sometimes, you just want a break from school (and even your friends), and S4S provided that comfort for me. thanks to my small group leaders who created such a safe space for everyone.

we create opportunities for
REAL community & REAL conversations

Students for Students provides curriculum topics crowd-sourced directly from students to ensure we are talking about what students want to talk about. Topics include:






their sport at school





traffic tickets









students for students groups are:

peer led

All groups are led by students, there are no adults in the room so groups are comfortable letting down their guard and having tough conversations.


Students for Students is passionate about being a place where all students can be themselves. They get to know each other and realize they are often dealing with the same issues. The conversations are natural, organic, and REAL.


Groups meet on their high-school campus weekly or every other week. It’s a space students can count on to be a constant in their lives; a place where they are known and heard. Consistency is the key to building deep connections and friendships.

I loved leading a group of people my junior year and would love to do it again too! I enjoy being a leader to the underclassmen and talking to them to help them through the year. I believe it helps create community and improve others’ mental health as well as my own through the friendships created.

With increasing concern regarding mental wellness within the current youth, I think it is crucial to create a space that talks about issues regarding these subjects. I want to be a small group leader because not only do I want to be in a group that addresses mental well-being, but I also want to help lead the discussion with my group.
