    Empowering students to resolve conflicts peacefully.
    Providing “preventive” counseling and assisting students in developing coping skills.
    Assisting students, teachers, parents and administrators and community members.
    Collaborating with parents/guardians and families in their children’s education.
    Helping make the school experience positive and successful.
