PFP (People Finding People)
People Finding People is a mentoring program in which 12th grade students are matched up to mentor 9th graders, 10th graders, and transfer students of all grades, one on one, throughout the school year. Senior mentors apply and interview to be selected for the program.
The mentor application process takes place in the spring of 11th grade. In class the following year, senior mentors receive training on topics including peer listening, confidentiality, empathy, encouragement, identifying and validating feelings, and simulated situations.
Each mentoring pair meets about once a week during the school day. Students have the opportunity to discuss a wide range of topics, such as academics, school culture, high school adjustment, emotional well-being, friends, and family, depending on each mentee’s needs and interests.
PFP is an important strength of the CDH community, allowing students to form inter-grade connections and strengthen their support systems. 9th graders, 10th graders, and transfer students have the opportunity to sign up during first trimester at the beginning of each school year.
