Own Your Peace is an every day part of the life of Needham High, where student leaders use the OYP Sculpture as a place to gather for learning, honoring milestones and remembrances, and social justice activism.
DIVERSITY and EQUITY
As a natural extension of emotional and relational health, OYP aims to create cultures, which honor diversity and strive for equity.
OUTREACH and COMMUNICATIONS
Messaging is a critical tool for raising awareness about mental health and resources. Students spread the word about wellness through poster campaigns, e-news publications and news programs.
