The WELL is dedicated to serving all Wake County High School students through a variety of program offerings. Student programs include activities and evidence based programs incorporating the theory of positive youth development. In short, positive youth development is an intentional, positive approach that engages youth within their various social groups (communities, schools, peer groups, families, etc.); recognizes and utilizes strengths of youth; and promotes positive outcomes for young people.
There are many organizations in Wake County dedicated to serving youth, but not many that serve high school students exclusively. The WELL focuses on developing the whole student, believing that serving solely the academic needs of students is not enough. High school is tough, and the WELL offers a holistic approach for personal and academic growth and success, encouraging our members to engage and invest in the WELL community, and greater Wake County community. We are a vital resource to students with few other places to turn.
