Why Try! is a New Program to help Lansingburgh Academy Students Achieve Academic Success
Every Wednesday after school, Leesa Crawford-Young, MS, (HS Guidance Counselor) and Teresa D’Arcangelis, LMSW, (Student Assistance Counselor) have invited students to participate in a group to help him/her become more successful in school, and to help gain insight into how to deal with daily challenges in life. The program helps young people answer the question, “Why try in life?” when they are frustrated, confused, or angry with life’s pressures and challenges. The Why Try program teaches students that trying hard in life and putting effort into challenges at home, school, and with peers is worth the effort. Interactive lessons will focus on vital social and emotional coping skills necessary to make good decisions that foster achievement, opportunity, freedom and self respect in life.
