Middle school life skills

Sara Braun is the Middle School Youth Advocate and provides services at Rye Middle School, Resurrection School and Rye Country Day School.

The middle school programs focus on the development of social and emotional skills that allow students to effectively cope with the pressures of middle school, recognizing the at-risk nature of this population. Sara offers programs on bullying and peer pressure, alcohol and substance abuse prevention, eating disorders and body image, good decision making, and life skills development. She also participates with school administrators in Crisis Intervention and Interdiscplinary Case studies. She provides popular girls' and boys' groups for lunchtime and also offers after school activities focused on tolerance, prejudice reduction and leadership development.
