Life @ Webb

Extracurricular Activities

The Webb School experience embodies more than outstanding academics. Our students actively participate and take on leadership roles in extracurricular activities, community service, athletics, the arts, international programs and more.

Webb School Clubs and Activities

The Webb School experience extends far beyond the confines of a classroom and continues well after the school day ends. Extracurricular activities are part of our co-curricular program, expanding and enriching student learning. Students are encouraged to embrace their curiosity, take risks, and pursue their unique interests. Led by faculty members, our clubs and activities also enable students to see their teachers in a different light . . . as individuals with outside talents and interests to share.

  • Peer Advisors

    SPONSOR: Alex Ardison
     
    BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF ACTIVITY/CLUB: The purpose of the peer advising program is to promote the health, well-being, and safety of students through peer education and referral. This program trains a select cross-section of students to act as helpers and active listeners for their fellow students. Students may apply to be Peer Advisors in the Fall of the sophomore or junior year.

    The core of the Peer Advising program is a training curriculum, which addresses skill building in communication, problem-solving, and decision-making. It also addresses a multitude of social, individual, school and family concerns. Through careful selection and training, peer advisors increase the likelihood that appropriate help can be received by requesting persons. The focus of the curriculum is preventative. A variety of intervention strategies are employed, however, to educate and motivate students or to involve trained professionals, when needed. The results can be a more positive and safer school climate, healthier students with lower stress levels, and a better utilization of school and community resources.

    Peer Advisors will be trained in several areas including:
    Eating disorders/body image
    Sexuality (STD’s, sexual orientation issues, etc.)
    Depression
    Self-esteem
    Anger management
    Conflict resolution
    Stress management
    Chemical abuse/addiction
    Abuse and neglect

    Peer Advisor Contract
    I understand that if I am selected to be a peer advisor, my role will be to provide support to other students and to assist them in peacefully resolving interpersonal conflicts. I agree that I will:
    Attend all peer advisor training sessions
    Attend all peer advisor supervision sessions.
    Serve as a peer advisor for the entire school year.
    Treat all students with respect.
    Serve as a role model in terms of behavior, both at school and at large.
    Make up any schoolwork missed because of peer advisor activities.
